Yeah, I figured as much.

Though Crosby and Jefferey's aren't subject to the 7 day rule, since they were never taken off the list from last season.

Center Sidney Crosby and winger Dustin Jeffrey won't have to wait the usual seven days to come off the NHL's injured reserve list, the Penguins confirmed Monday.
Crosby (concussion) and Jeffrey (right knee) were never taken off the list dating to last season. They were designated for injured reserve yesterday as part of a series of roster moves by the Penguins. Also on the injured reserve list are forward Nick Petersen and defensemen Robert Bortuzzo and Boris Valabik.
A player on the injured reserve must wait seven days before he can play, but if a player's designation carried over from the previous season, that term does not apply. This is the case with Crosby and Jeffrey neither of whom will play Thursday when the Penguins open the season at Vancouver.
Technically, both players could dress for weekend games at Edmonton and Calgary, but that is unlikely given their current status.
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
