Primeau to return for Game 3?

Flyers forward Keith Primeau was cleared by the doctors to start taking hits in practice beginning last Friday, and has not suffered any setbacks from the physical contact since. Primeau wouldn't confirm that he's going to dress for either Game 3 or Game 4, but he wouldn't deny it either. Primeau said he wanted to play in both Games 1 and 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, but he just didn't feel completely in game-shape, although most of his post-concussive symptoms are gone.

The Flyers hero from the 2004 postseason would certainly be a boost, but you have to wonder what his conditioning would be like after nearly an entire season away.

This is Primeau's sixth concussion, meaning he's catching up to guys like Eric Lindros (8) and Jeremy Roenick (10).

Before the series started I had picked him to come back in game 3.
Unless they are bluffing, the news today is that he won’t be back for Game 3, but probable for Game 4
I don’t think his conditioning is that much off. He has been skating and working out daily for most of the season. He hasn’t been sitting at home on the couch waiting for the symptoms to go away. The question is can he adjust mentally to the higher energy, higher paced game of the playoffs.
