Should he have waited until the off season to have his surgery?
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.
