Coming into the season I thought Volchenkov would be just as big of a key to the season as getting Kovalchuk would be, he isn't the only reason we are struggling, but sure is a piece of the puzzle.

What is his estimated time of return? He had a broken nose, correct? Was it an extra serious one or something?

I was going to ask the same thing. I mean, not for nothing, but he is our #1 defenseman. So, y'know, it kinda helps when we get him back.

I think the last update is that he should start skating soon but he isn't initially traveling with the team for the trip. Whether that means he won't play any of the games on the trip or there may be an option for him to meet the team during the trip I don't know.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

He has a broken nose and a stiff neck apparently. He saw the teams doctor Tuesday afternoon and still remains "status quo" -Lou

He has begun working out off ice though.

I do know, from back in highschool, I pulled a neck muscle during the hockey season and couldnt even turn to look either way. My head was cocked to the side and I couldnt even straighten in. So if that is anything like A-Train has, I fully understand why a stiff neck would keep you out for this amount of time.

I would say hell be back around mid November if not sooner.

I saw somewhere earlier today that he is scheduled to resume on-ice workouts soon, but he isn't accompanying the team. I'd say a safe bet is right after the road trip.

I don't think we are getting the truth regarding his condition.

Lamoriello on Volchenkov: “He felt pretty good. He was working out off the ice. He’s been getting back in shape, so we’ll see.”

That's great it takes three days to find out he's skating. It was probably at 3 am with police surrounding the building.

TG also thinks he could join the Devils out West.

I'm going to bother him now til he tells us he has no idea where Zharkov is and he'll try to find out and then tell us weeks later.
