He hasnt even been cleared for contact. Im sure he/they would like him to have a few contact practices first.


Isn't cleared for contact the same thing as cleared to play?

This isn't' a concussion. Its a broken bone. He'll play when cleared

Yes, but don't you think that HCDB and maybe Sid himself would want to have a few "contact" practices first? He's been out for over a month and it is now the playoffs....a little harder hitting and not as much room out there.

I of course hope he plays, but I can see him not playing until at least game 2. And this is if he's even cleared.

Didn't he already say if he's cleared, he's playing? That's not verbatim, but I'm fairly certain that's the gist of what he said to reporters a few days ago.

How many full practices did Martin have before returning after being cleared? 3-5?

I believe he did say that, but players and coaches have said things like that before and it ends up not happening.

Seems like they usually ask the player if they think they are ready to go after being cleared. Some players are not ready, others are. I hope Sid thinks he is ready. edit: it's not like this is a regular season game. Lots of players play with injuries they would normally sit out with if it were not for the playoffs. I'm sure Sid doesn't want to miss a second.

I can't believe this is up for debate.

If Sid is cleared for playing/contact, he is in Wednesday night.

Come on.

If he gets clearance tomorrow, he plays Wednesday, it is that simple. This isn't a getting cleared for contact type thing that after you get that clearnance, you get some practice time in before progressing to games. This is a clearance to play call.

Because it made zero sense to have Martin play before using the last game of the regular season as a tune-up.

Yep, exactly. Crosby has already clearly stated that he's ready to play as soon as he's cleared. There's no doubt he plays Wednesday if cleared tomorrow.

More like one. Crosby's already taken in two practices with the Pens.

I think this last hurdle of clearance is just a formality. IMO. I would be surprised if he wasn't cleared. Of course he must take as long as needed but it seems to me the Pens have more of a timetable than they are letting on.

It's possible...

1. It is advantageous to wait longer to announce as it forces the other team to prepare for both scenarios
2. In the event of a setback, they don't want everyone crying that they lied about it/were wrong

I'm sure they've always had a timetable; at least within days of his first, major surgery. With a broken bone, how can you not?

Not releasing a timetable has PR written all over it. We all know how terrible it looked when the Pens said Sid would be out a week with a concussion. No timetable = no expectations & you cover your own ass if he got an infection (something that apparently could've delayed a return by weeks). Regardless, from the beginning, it was easy to see the rough timetable was at about 4 weeks. We're just past that 4 week mark now, so a return can't be far off--regardless of what happens with the doctor tomorrow.
