Carey Price On Returning To Action

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

On a scale of 1 to 10, Carey Price rates his health somewhere between 3 and 7.

Recently practising in full gear for the first time in months, the NHL’s reigning MVP is still optimistic to return to the Montreal Canadiens this season, but there is no timeline for his return to action as he recovers from a lower-body injury.

“As soon as possible,” Price told reporters in Brossard, Que., Thursday, after facing pucks. “I haven’t seen a shot for three months. To go out on the ice and do some real work, it’s been real nice.

“I’m starting to push my limits a bit more,” added Price, who believes he turned the corner in his recovery over the last couple of weeks. “I’m continuing the process. It’s been a really long one, obviously.”

What is the point in returning this year?

This just seems idiotic. I know there is a lot of personal pride involved but the risk is WAY too high. Wait until next year when he is 100%.
