08:21 AM ET 05.31 | Manny Malhotra may well complete an improbable comeback. Malhotra continues to ramp up his game towards an appearance in the opener of the Stanley Cup final on Wednesday. The Canucks center, who suffered a serious eye injury when hit by a deflected puck on March 16, participated in his most physical workout with the team on Monday at Rogers Arena and said he's continuing to progress in the right direction. Malhotra maintained he's going to leave a final determination on playing -- at least a public one -- until Wednesday morning. "I'd like to say, yes [that he'll play on Wednesday in Game 1]," said Malhotra, who revealed on Saturday he has been cleared for contact by team doctors and given the green light to play.

If he doesn't wear a visor he's pretty stupid.

I hope team chemistry gets disrupted.

And not playing for a long time certainly isn't going to help his legs in a high speed playoff game. Even a great skater like Mike Modano was sucking wind when he finally played.

And they both have the initials MM.

Another conspiracy? Why hasn't The Province reported this?

Oh that. I can't say I've seen it other than is a poorly timed PVR jump. Didn't know they had championships for it though?

Priceless, HC. I used to go to this gym and get a kick of guys watching poker on ESPN while working out. They would stare at the tube with jaws agape, transfixed as if nothing else in the world mattered more.
