I just got off the phone with Jere Lehtinen, and he said he's no more decided on playing this season than he was at the beginning of the summer.
He said he has thought a lot about the injuries and about how he has had to push his body through some tough things, and he's still not sure he's ready to do that again. He just got back to North Texas late last week and spent a hectic day taking the kids to the first day of school on Monday, so he has not been working out or skating.
He and Joe Nieuwendyk are expected to have a meeting on Wednesday morning, so maybe we'll know more then, but he acknowledged that he understands he will have to make a decision soon. He has about three weeks to get ready for training camp, which starts Sept. 17.
