What was on Gillis's mind when he decided what to do with Edler?
Did Gillis decide anything? He's not a doctor. Sure, he can give Edler his opinion but I doubt that he has the final say on the matter. Most players wouldn't risk the rest of their career by trying to play through it for a one season run.

My guess would be that his doctor initially thought he could put off surgery until the off-season, but he changed his mind and decided that now is better than later.
