I'm not expecting him to come back this season. Just lower your expectations in life, and you will remain happy.

This is implying you have to have lower expectations to remain happy. Lol, you can have high expectations and also be happy cause when they're not met you strive for better or accept it.

I'd actually argue that higher expectations = higher success.

High expectations about something you have no control over has no impact on your future success or failure. If I expect Karlsson to be back in one week how can I strive to better that situation in the future if my expectation is not met? I suppose like you said I could accept it, but why not aim low and be surprised when something exceeds my lowered expectation?

Now if my expectations are high in regards to an exam I have studied for then that is a different story.

True different scenarios that I tried to tackle with one example.

I think what I was trying to say was...

GO BIG BABY!

How much of Erik's achiles was severed?

Just saw during the habs flyers game that Erik Wellwood cut his own achilles with a skate severed it 70% and is scheduled to be out 9-12 months.

I thought Karlsson's was 90% severed?

Karlsson had 70% severed. Im guessing where the cut is, makes a huge difference.

Karlsson is also a huge diver, so it probably wasn't as bad as all that.

Exactly, I can't believe how much of a whiner he was. I mean, it was only a freshly sharpened skate blade through his flesh.

You must be a recruiter for government careers or something

This is so ridiculous, I don't even know where to begin with. I guess I'll just never understand that "né pour un petit pain" mentality. Thought it was only in Quebec.

Don't lower your expectations, just try to stay realistic as much as possible while aiming for the sky. Or just face life like it is, like real men do. However I think it is better to "stay in the middle", too much of a realist is not healthy as well. Personally, I'm trying hard to find the right balance

As Bruce Lee said, sober moderation is the only thing that survives.

And he died young. Since there's no guarantee how long you live, I am on the indulgence category.

Having said that, we do need to curb our enthusiasm, there's no guarantee either Karlsson or Spezza may lace-up any time soon.

That only applies if you have some control over the situation. If you have high expectations for something that you have zero control over it will often lead to disappointment.

I do not want EK to play again until next season.

....Or it could lead to exaltation... That's what happens when you get excited about things, you're either rewarded or disappointed. The whole process of excitement is at stake here with your views. Personally I enjoy the highs and lows of life, and much prefer that to moderating myself to a constant middle, sounds beige, bland, and suffocatingly average/normal. I suppose someone has to do it, so good on ya!

And the bold part is just silly.

If EK is ready to play, why in the world would anyone not want him to play. That is of course unless your professional opinion differs from that of the team specialists...

Hiding away for fear of something bad happening... It's an odd way to be...
