With a full off-season of rehab, yes.

Yes. Give him time. Other players who have had this kind of injury have stated it takes up to a year to get back to normal, in terms of skating.

Right, I'm scared he's doing damage to it.

I'm not worried at all... he looks like **** and still has 6 points in 5 games...
if I just got my Achilles cut I would be taking it slightly easy... Especially skating wise..

Luckily Karlsson's talent isn't just because he has otherworldly skating, he is also one of the the most rediculously smart young players I have ever seen...

I don't expect the real Karlsson to show up until, next season.

I'd compare it to Adrian Peterson's ACL graft surgery, he comes back after an injury that 10 years ago would have probably ended his career.

Yeah, I'm worried about Karlsson too. Although it's nice to be sitting here while the Sens are still playing and griping about Karlsson. The Habs just folded their tents.

The media should really start calling him out on it. I think the good news is it's mostly his decision making. I mean, I can't speak to whether his speed will ever be the same, but mostly he's making some terrible first passes. He's fighting it a little and it's probably a combination of the injury and all the hype. Like he's trying to do something amazing rather than just playing.

The decision making will probably come back. I don't know about the skating.

Jumping the gun a bit up in this thread OP lol

He came back from an injury that was supposed to take 6 months just to be able to play again.

Players that have had that injury say about a year for full recovery.

If there was any risk of further damaging it, the doctors would not have cleared him. The Sens aren't stupid, they aren't going to risk their 22 year old superstar for 1 playoff run.

Absolutely. They've said all along that it's going to take time for him to reach 100%.

I don't think it's a question of him being rushed back. I can't speak for the OP but that's not what I was talking about. I was talking about how you feel nervous when he plays the puck. Whether it's that first pass out of their zone or a slapshot from the point that might bounce off a Hab and cause a breakaway or 2 on 1... I've been nervous when the puck is on his stick -- that's probably why his minutes were reduced. MacLean was too.

The decision making will come back, though. He's fighting it probably because he feels expected to do something amazing and it ain't there yet.

I asked a surgeon this and if he takes care of himself, 100% yes.

Selanne said he took over a year to come back. Karlsson will be fine, but we can't expect him to be 'karlsson' in the playoffs for us.

Honestly, his straight skating speed isn't that laboured, it's any kinds of turns or pivots that are holding him back.

As a result he's not skating at his maximum velocity because he won't be able to make the turns necessary to elude defenders or hit open guys with passes.

It will take time for him to strengthen the Achilles sufficiently for him to perform those high intensity turns and pivots. I think it will take at least a full off season for him to regain that ability. He may be back at full capacity some time in March next year.

It takes anywhere from 4-7 months, AFTER being able to play again, to be 100%

It is fully healed, no damage can be done. He just needs to keep strengthening and stretching. He will be back 110%.

I have already seen flashes of Karlsson before injury, so it will not be too long.

Guys who had similar surgeries with worse injuries (e.g. Salo and Bieksa) said that it takes months to almost a year before they felt completely normal again.

Yes he's definitely shows a bit of early Karlsson from time to time.

What a dumb thread.
He's playing less than 100%, and doctors have said he isn't doing damage, but fans always want to speculate he is for some reason

He's been back for, what, seven games?

It took Malkin awhile to heal from the achilles tear, but he sure seemed fine last season. This isn't a concussion/broken bone, just a bit of a fluke play that seemed to heal at a very, very quick rate.

Remember, he hasn't played consistently for months, and he hasn't been skating all too long. He's probably a little out of shape right now.

Easily yes, IQ, playmaking, vision were all there, only thing he didnt have was explosiveness which is because of lack of strength which can be fixed through off-season training. He is also playing "safer" if I may say that. If karlsson ddint make good passes, good reads,patience or didnt produce points then Id be worried, but he showed that hes more than a fast skating dman, if anything he has improved the way he reads the game and his game(mentally) has improved.
