OMG guys, this is awesome news. After this crap 4 game losing streak I am literally:



I am so happy, that video was beautiful.

Please though, don't come back till you're 100%. But WOW, incredible. From barely walking 4 weeks ago to skating like that

As another poster on the last page said, it's going to be very key to see how he responds AFTER skating. The ankle can act up on him and suddenly give him pain at any time so as long as the day after is as good as it felt while he's skating than everything is going great.

He looked like he was pushing himself out there too, there was nothing easy about the skating he did around the pylons.

So damn good to see!!

Well if the team can manage to make it to the second round it looks like everyone may well be back in the lineup. It's scary to think how good a team we'd be with Spezza, Karlsson, Michalek and Cowen back in the lineup. I have a feeling this is one of those teams that will just get more dominant the further into the playoffs they go, but the first round is gonna be tough to get out of.

All the Sens need is some news on J. If they go in 100% healthy, watch out.

I remember the day HF put us on suicide watch. My only thing is wait till after they play the Pens to play him.

SO great to see. Clearly it's still early and he'll need to rebuild strength and get into skating shape again, but it's awesome to see so much progress so far. Here's hoping to his continued seamless recovery!

Alfie must have lent Karlsson some of his healing power

Siiiiickkkkk

Agree he isn't doing all out skating but the pylon dancing on the one leg certainly would be stressing the tendon. If he has been skating for a week and is already doing that drill things must be going well.

That said - can't imagine he won't need at least another month or so if not more? The fact he can be on blades and do some twirls shows he has a great range of motion and that is so important...need to keep that up and continue to strengthen the ankle.

The realistic side of me says Cowen and Michalek have been practicing with the team for over a week now I think and we don't know when they will be back and Karlsson can't be close to practicing with the team yet so I can't get my hopes up...

My mind is racing, I don't know anything other than that video is some form of good news.

And it looks like he's putting a full load on the front of his left foot, straining the injured achilles tendon. That's a good sign.

In yesterday's video, it looked like he might have been keeping his left-foot weight distribution towards his heel. But this pic looks like he's using the achilles more.

Slow and steady, Erik... be sure. I'm not sure if an injured achilles would be painful or not, minus the trauma of the original laceration. I think it would be hard to sense if the tendon was holding up until it failed again.

most likely matt spezza.

i know they bought his new goalie equipment for him, but i wonder if they pay him some per diem or something for every practice he does for the team.

TAMPA, Fla. — People were stunned that the Senators would use a first-round pick to draft a 150-lb. defenceman from Sweden in the first place, never mind that, two years later and only a few meatballs heavier, the same kid would score 45 points in his rookie NHL season.
