THIS IS FROM TSN:
"Scott Niedermayer hasn't entirely made up his mind as to whether to return to the NHL or not, however he intends to force that decision in the coming weeks.
Niedermayer believes he needs to establish a personal deadline and won't say when that deadline is, other than to admit a decision on his playing future will be made well before Christmas.
The veteran defenseman say he has been working out, staying in shape and is just starting to intensify his routine.
Perhaps a hint, at least partially, his decision has been made, although he will not state that for the record.
The fact the Ducks are a sub-500 hockey team, struggling to regain their Stanley Cup form hasn't been lost on Niedermayer and he may feel a sense of responsibility to help Anaheim defend.
To date, Ducks general manager Brian Burke hasn't pressured his former captain, and it doesn't appear he'll have to.
Burke will soon have an answer and so will Niedermayer's fans."
SOUNDS LIKE HE IS GETTING READY TO COME BACK TO ME.
Take it as you will.
