If his hernia is fully healthy (I'm not entirely sure), my guess would be Friday's game, absoluetly no later than Sunday's game.

Assuming it is healthy, I doubt he'd be playing tonight. The trade was finalized early this afternoon, he might be in Chicago for the game tonight but it's just too much of a hassel to get the jersey created, get him playing with new linemates without some practice, and all that jazz.

I'm looking forward to see how he performs soon.

I just read that they don't think he will play until Mid-March. Sorry, I don't have the link, though.

He said he isn't 100% yet and won't play until he is. Kenny speculated mid to end of March.

My bad, I didn't know, was just guessing. All the trade stuff has been impossible to keep up with and work's been nuts so I'm pretty out of the loop right now in terms of hockey talk. Thanks for correcting me.

Kenny just said at least 10 days and that he wants to make sure nothing is wrong with him at all.

Holland said on the radio today that it would be mid-March at the earliest. He's going to get a long walkthough with team doctors this week and they'll take their time with him before he returns to the ice.

At this point there's no reason to rush him.

I just hope that he gets a solid week's worth of playing time before the playoffs.

Bertuzzi back problems this season stemmed from a herniated disk in his lower back. When anti-inflammatory shots failed to dull the pain he elected to undergo a microdiscectomy remove the bulging disk on Nov. 3rd. Normal recovery time is only 2-6 weeks, but it would take longer before one engages in physical contact. Bertuzzi had a few full practices with the Panthers during the first week of February, but a 'setback meant that he wouldn't return to the ice before the trading deadline. As others have mentioned the Wings will take their time and are aiming for a late March return.

I say a couple of weeks. He'll want to see action before the playoffs and he even said in an interview on TSN today that neither he nor the Wings are in a rush to get him back out there.

He said today on TSN that he is a few weeks away. He and Holland agree that they dont want to rush things, they want a healthy beast going into the playoffs.
