Nieuwendyk Preparing For Return

from the Palm Beach Post,
Nieuwendyk, who signed with the Panthers after last season's lockout, will continue to skate on his own and might practice with the team this weekend. If he is not ready for Friday's game against Carolina, he will aim to return Nov. 19 for a home game against the New York Islanders. "I would like to get back with the team as soon as possible... (but) it's not fair to them and it's not fair to anybody if I go back too early and things flare up again," he said. "Maybe with the year off I didn't pay as much attention to my core as possible." "Basically, I have a bad back," he said.
