Alexander Semin, Sergei Fedorov, Mike Green, Tom Poti and Chris Clark are all on the ice right now practicing. The rest of the team has the day off. Bruce Boudreau said he hasn’t ruled out taking some of these guys on the trip to Toronto and Raleigh, but he is waiting until they come off the ice to talk them before the decision is made.

UPDATE: Of the four injured guys who practiced, only Alexander Semin was sure he isn’t going on the road trip. Mike Green said he is very close to coming back, putting his shoulder at 85-90 percent. Sergei Fedorov and Tom Poti remain pretty frustrated with their ankle and groin problems, respectively. John Erskine was not on the ice at all. Chris Clark said he is getting the cast off of his right arm in a week.
