I get what you're saying, but what do you do for a guy like Glen Murray? He's out with an injury, is skating in practice, and he'll play whenever he feels he's ready. There's no real time table for his return.
Hi Guest 9262, I hear what you are saying and it is a useful suggestion. In fact we used to provide some estimate of return but the maintenance of keeping it up to date is tremendous. On top of that we then get too many email saying that the status is out of date or wrong (even if it is right) There are just too many sources with varying degrees of information and accuracy. So until we can stream a feed right from each team (or an official source) we will likely keep it the way it is (feeds cost money and since we're a free site it makes it tough to pay for )
