Hah that confirms what I said in a thread a few weeks ago about how horrible Volchenkov was with the puck, and people glossing over that in his memories of him.

Karlsson is one of the few dman who tries to retrieve the puck and take it out, as opposed to dumping it out or shooting the puck around.

I've always been impressed by Karlsson's development. If he was hyped like a top pick, everything he did would have fed that hype:

08: drafted
08-09: 1 year in SEL and a WJC Best defensemen
09-10: ppg in AHL, strong NHL playoffs
10-11: fringe all-star, near top 10 dman point pace
11-12: definition of all-star, Norris

Karlsson should be up-and-skating by August and fully ready and 100% by the start of the year. If he isn't ready for Sochi then it's not for a lack of recovery but something much worse.

Didn't they say 3-4 months? It's already been almost a month. He should be skating by mid playoffs, according to reports. If he only started skating by august, that would be super disappointing.

Frankly I could care less when he skates as long as it means he will be back at 100%. If it takes until August and he misses some of the beginning of next season then who cares. Better off coming back when he is fully healthy than risking re-injuring himself by rushing back to meet estimated return times.

They should get him on the ice now. Is it against the rules to play in sneakers?

They said this type of injury takes 6 months to recover from. So I'm just taking precautions but yea, in a perfect recovery, he should be skating by mid-playoffs, even a bit earlier. If he's already wearing sneakers now, in a month he should be able to add more aggressive weight on it and another to start light-skating.

for sure, but i'm just talking about the injury report. It said 3-4 months. We just found out he's wearing normal footwear and getting around a lot more easily right now. Recovery is looking good, therefore we are ok to assume it shouldn't be any longer then 3-4 barring any setback.

He got injured wednesday february 13th. Had surgery friday ferburary 15th.

3 months means he's back may 15th.(2nd round of playoffs)
4 months means hes's back june 15th (around stanley cup time)

And he would have to resume skating before that. So i would not be shocked to see karlsson getting cleared for "light on ice activity" like cowen by playoff time. Basically it would be just in line with what the doctors predicted.

I am still far from convinced that he will ever come back to the level he was during the start of this season.

I'm not. I'm gonna trust the doctors/specialists who said expect a full recovery.

Pfft. Everyone knows he's coming back for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals against Marian Hossa's Chicago Blackhawks.

Actually surprised reports like this hadn't come out earlier.

Quote:
OTTAWA — Vince Creaco has nothing against Erik Karlsson. But when the Ottawa Senators’ star defenceman arrived at The Ottawa Hospital’s Civic campus in the early hours of Feb. 14 after his Achilles tendon was lacerated during a game in Pittsburgh, the 48-year-old Ottawa man saw red. And it wasn’t the colour of Karlsson’s hockey sweater.

Creaco had already been waiting about five hours in the hospital’s emergency department for treatment for his 76-year-old mother, whose systolic blood pressure had spiked to 200. Any reading above 140 is considered high and Creaco was worried his mother could have a stroke.

The two had been at the hospital since 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 13. After an initial assessment by a nurse, they had waited nearly four hours in the ER’s observation area and another 30 minutes or so in a hallway in the urgent care area before being admitted to a room, where a doctor examined Creaco’s mother. The doctor ordered some X-rays and blood tests, and told the two to wait in the hall for the results.

That’s where they were when Karlsson’s entourage showed up shortly after midnight. The wounded defenceman was in a wheelchair, accompanied by team doctor Don Chow and two other men. They went directly into an urgent care room.

Creaco overheard Chow on the phone, arranging immediate surgery for Karlsson. Meanwhile, nurses were buzzing around the player, gathering samples of his blood, he said. “I assume they were prepping him for surgery.” Within a half an hour, Creaco says, Karlsson was taken away for an operation to repair his Achilles tendon.

“Even the other people in the (urgent care) room were sort of rolling their eyes. Here comes the hockey star and next thing you know, he gets the attention and doesn’t have to wait and, boom, he’s off to surgery,” Creaco said.

“Meanwhile the rest of us had to wait for six hours. To have him show up in the urgent care, go into the room and get treatment and get whisked off, that’s just mean and cruel.”

People whining for the sake of whining. We all know what money buys, this isn't an exception. If he's not happy, he can go to the US and pay for the health care.

Is this really about privilege? Wouldn't an Achilles injury be pretty critical in any event?

This is how its supposed to work in the USA, not Canada.

Its a little muddy because the doctor in this case is employed by the Senators organization, but I'm guessing the nurses and assistants are all employed by the hospital. And the x-ray machine and blood work is certainly done by the hospital, not the team's. So I get this guys frustration.

However, as much as the operation was a success, we don't know exactly how serious the cut was... I know when I was a kid my friend cut his Achilles tendon and he definitely was in the ER and on the operating table very soon after.

Fact is, if anybody else had rolled in the ER with a 70% severed Achilles tendon they'd likely have pushed that guy to the front of the line too. I hope.

Money is not supposed to by anything with our healthcare, that's why we always use the falsehood that it's so good.

As I recall Karlsson had 70% of his tendon cut. Doing some reading on the internet after the accident, with a full cut, the longer it takes to reattach the tendon, the worse the prognosis since the tendon can recede. With that said, despite Karlsson's tendon not being fully ruptured, I still imagine that the sooner it's repaired, the better.

So yeah.
