Stephane Robidas’ right leg still not fully healed

The Toronto Maple Leafs signed a player that more than a few teams' fans viewed as a simple low-cost option in 37-year-old Stephane Robidas (he signed a 3-year, $9 million contract), but the Toronto Star's Kevin McGran reports that Robidas' right leg--which was broken twice last season, once while he was playing for the Dallas Stars and once while he was playing in the playoffs with the Anaheim Ducks--isn't quite good to go yet:

Robidas had surgery to replace a screw in his knee after the season and has not been cleared for contact.

Training camp opens Sept. 18.

“I feel great, I have been skating on my own,” said Robidas. “But I am not cleared for contact yet. I will probably do the first few practices with the team but I won’t do any scrimmages. The goal is to play in the last couple of pre-season games and get ready for the start of the season.”

I think Robidas was a nice pick up, but holy wow I missed the news that he was signed for 3 years.  Risky…...
