I don't know where you get that from. Sauer wasn't struggling at all. In fact he has hardly struggled since becoming a regular 2 years ago. A very solid player and great to hear he is back in good health.

Not quite true...he was working out in January and actually skated in 3-4 practices before shutting it down again. I spoke to a family member in January and they told me he was feeling fine and expected back after the All-Star game. That obviously didn't happen and the subsequent turn of events must have been very severe.
