The guy needs to focus on gaining more weight and muscle to avoid getting killed out there and to make up for his lack of speed.

True story. Tall, lanky players generally don't last long in the NHL. If he has slowed down his lack of size is really going to hurt him.

The thing that worries me is the nerve injury. If he has lost feeling in his foot he may have also lost muscle activity in the small muscles of his foot.
Not as important when your foot is in a boot than say for a soccer or football player but to get back to the level he was skating at pre injury it may be tough...

Your feet and hands are mostly tendons and bones...

Tall? Lanky? Are we talking about Karlsson or Wiercioch?

Motor nerves and sensory nerves are two different pathways. Motor nerves exit out of the front of the spine while sensory nerves exit the back. I don't know if they stay separated that way down the leg, but if they do it would mean his motor function would not likely be affected.

It'll be awesome if he plays like last season. Couple gifs, first dealing with the Hart winner, the other some smooth moves.

uhh thats in the spine... they join together and form one big nerve which separates to supply different muscles and sensory areas. Depending on how much sensation he's lost he's probably lost motor as well. Medial plantar nerve I would guess...

That would be why I said I don't know if they continued to be separate front and back lower down... The nerves are all separate they just bundle together. Hard to say how much damage as I think his tibial nerve would be most likely affected and it is underneath the achillies tendon. His wasn't cut all the way through so I have no clue how bad it would be.

Wow, some big worriers here. The guy was no where near 100% when he came back last season and still posted 11 points in 13 games. Even a less than 100% EK65 is pretty awesome.

I've had surgery on my hand that resulted in me losing sensation between my knuckles. Losing sensation and losing function are completely different things. Karlsson has only said it "feels" different. That sounds like purely sensation to me. If he says he will be able to skate 100% at the start of the season, I'm inclined to believe him. And if he is feeling like this summer's workouts were even better than last year, look out NHL.

The biggest worry isn't whether or not EK can be effective when he returns, we know he will be. Its the worry that we wont be able to witness him hit his full, unimpeded potential that scare peoples the most I think. Would be an incredible shame for everyone whos a fan of hockey imo.

On gym time vs. ice time:

I've spent some time on the ice. I don't think I needed to skate as much as I did, but it's feeling good and right now I skate almost as good as I used to. It's early in the season now so it's tough to say, but I will have no issues on the ice.

Erik Karlsson will be back *****es

What a relief to hear.

We all knew/know a full recovery would take upwards of 12 months, so to hear that he is "almost" there is great news.

On his relationship with Alfie:

On a personal level it's going to be tough, I'm going to miss him a lot. We developed a close friendship and spent a lot of time together during the season and after the season. For me it's going to be a bit of a change but at the same time, I knew this was going to happen at some point. I'm going to have to, unfortunately, hang out more with Spezza and the other guys.
Careful EK.
