A)Having Edler miss as little number of games as possible.
B)Having Edler have the optimum amount of conditioning time before playing.
C)Having Salo play as much as possible from the time he is healthy until the playoffs.

Come playoff time I would rather have a healthy and rested Edler who will need maybe one or two games to get to 100% and a healthy and rested Salo who will have zero rust and be the Salo we know.

Lot better then having a unhealthy Edler whos injury can at any time worsen and he can be out for the year and a Salo who hasnt played in a year.
I wasn't suggesting rushing Edler back from injury. But I don't like the idea of throwing Edler into the playoffs cold when he's our best defenseman. If Salo weren't in the equation, he probably would have at least gotten a few regular season games to shake the rust off.
