Now comes word that Jared Cowen draws back in to the Sens lineup tonight! His prognosis after hip surgery back in November was 6-8 months, but here he is, ready to go, only 5 months later.
I've always been surprised by Max Pacioretty's ability to quickly recover from seemingly devastating injuries. I wonder if the trainers in Ottawa got a hold of some of Pacioretty's sweat and spiked Karlsson & Cowen's Gatorade.
Spezza hasn't been seen around the team in ages. Obviously, someone needs to find him and give him a sip.
I dont think that trainers have anything to do in the speed of recovery of a player. It depends on each player and the gravity of an injury.
Players like Pacioretty/Karlsson are lucky to have a body that heals faster than normality. I put it in the same category as the height of a player.
Pleased to hear good news on Karlsson
