Good thing Ballard wasn't put on waivers!

If Edler is out 6-8 weeks and back in the line-up for the final week of the season (if there's room/someone else is injured), then I think we can see this as a bullet dodged.

Also, this pretty much guarantees the Canucks will have about 1.5 million + any salary they can shed to make a deadline acquisition if they want to.
How does that exactly mean we'll have $1.5M?

Well, according to a lot of people Salo is our best defenseman so with him back in 2-4 weeks we shouldn't be too poorly off. It's time for Hamhuis and Ballard to really step up and show why they're paid those salaries. It's not just for depth, these guys need to be top-pairing defensemen regularly.

Good thing we have Tanev and Sweatt who look like they can be counted on for the bottom pairing.

This is possibly a good thing... sure it sucks that Edler will be out but he should be back right away for the playoffs! Salo can work his way back into the lineup now and we'll be set for the first round.

I would think a professional athlete would also have better stabilizing muscles in the back which would help alleviate some of the extra risks they carry (all of the twisting/impact on a near-daily basis). Hopefully Edler isn't forced to curb the physical part of his game that is developing so wonderfully.

Against by better judgement I am remaining positive!

There's probably rumblings of a miraculous recovery! He'll probably play next game

Wishing Edler all the best with the surgery, and a speedy, complete recovery.

And, wishing Salo godspeed on his return to game fitness.

just bizarre how, no matter what we do, our d-corps always winds up depleted. nice to see the depth gillis has given us with guys like tanev looking pretty comfortable in the show.

call it canucks-fan-syndrome (CFS), because as much as i've been enjoying this recent run, i've been resigned to the fact that some kind of major injury was looming on the horizon. well, here it is (hopefully this is it.)

to take a positive from this though, it gives guys like sweatt and tanev a chance to get some big time experience with the club, while we are relatively safe in terms of our western conference seeding. also, if speculation about a 7-week recovery is correct, it means that's 7 weeks that elder isn't playing and, therefore, risking the possibility of a worse injury (the CFS is stroooong in me...)

this team has shown what it's capable of so far this year, but it won't mean a thing unless we do something in the playoffs. (i'm in montreal and i'm reminded of this any time i even think of talking smack about my nucks) if we have to drop a few spots in the final standings, but have the services of a healthy edler for an even healthier playoff run, then i'm definintely all for this surgery. gillis hasn't really effed up so far, in my opinion, so i have no complaints about them opting for this surgery now...

That's crazy, at least we didn't trade Bieksa for Filatov or a 4th line centre though.

We might need consider that he won't even be back for the playoffs??? Worst case scenario.

Anybody have any info on how long it generally takes hockey players to return after this type of surgery? Examples other than Daniel???? The net is full of stories of people returning to work after 4-6 weeks but NHL d-man is a little different than postal worker (obviously).

I doubt this means much for guys like Sweatt and Tanev actually; knowing our coaching staff as soon as Rome and Alberts are healthy those guys are still going back to the farm.

Probably right. At this point though I'd rather keep Tanev over Rome. I just haven't been pleased with how Rome's played this year and I think he's taken a slight step back from last year. Tanev could actually use this icetime and gain valuable experience in Vancouver.

Alberts, OTOH, I would keep around. He's bottom pairing quality for sure, and he brings an element of physicality that this team needs.

My surgery was fairly major, due to a large bulging disc pressing against nerves and what not. 3 hour surgery, 5 nights in hospital, and about 6 months of rehab with minor issues to this day.

Most of my problems stemmed from it taking about 4 months for a proper diagnosis and then almost 2 months of waiting for surgery, which is why my rehab took a long time.

Edler should be able to rehab fairy quickly and will have a lot of support to do so.

Crimaney... so Salo back soon. We'll platoon it for the next month and then hope the troops (Salo, Alberts, Rome and eventually Edler) will be back and up to game shape when the playoffs hit.

NO MORE INJURIES ON D PLEASE!!!!

We still have four top four guys after the allstar break (not including Salo) - Bieksa should be ready by then. It's bad news to be sure, but it's not yet approaching the problems in prior seasons.

**** **** ****. ****!

Thank you mg for not dealing kb3.

Just a quick google I found this quote on a site.

"You may begin bicycling and swimming about 2 weeks after surgery as directed by your doctor or physical therapist.
If you work in an office, you may return to work within 2 to 4 weeks. If your job requires physical labor (such as lifting or operating machinery that vibrates) you may be able to return to work 4 to 8 weeks after surgery.
Many people are able to resume work and daily activities soon after surgery. In some cases, your doctor may recommend a rehabilitation program after surgery, which might include physical therapy and home exercises."

It just makes sense, really. Alberts is an experienced bottom pairing defender and he was playing decent hockey up until he got hurt. To avoid a cap crunch when Alberts and Rome are healthy, both Tanev and Sweatt would return to Manitoba as neither requires waivers. Plus, Rome(as the 7th man) has a lesser cap hit than Tanev($750,000 for Rome vs. $900,000 for Tanev). While Sweatt makes less, he would be better served playing big minutes in Manitoba--and can be sent there without being lost on waivers--than being a 7th man. Rome is ideal for that spot.

I don't think it's a bad thing that these guys get more time in Winnipeg once everyone is healthy.

EDIT: And do we know for sure it's this disc injury everyone's talking about? The articles/quotes I've seen haven't specified any further than "back surgery"...

Before they needed to clear 1.8 million in cap space to bring Salo back. Edler's 3.25 or whatever coming off the books will clear up about 1.5 million.

Once Alberts/Rome are back I imagine Tanev and his 900k will be returned to the AHL. Canucks should have about 1.5 million in LTIR once Edler is put on the LTIR.

Roughly.
