Yeah, you're right. 99% it's successful surgery with on schedule rehab. It's that 1% that scares me. As long as he has 2 weeks of hockey before the playoffs I would be quite content.

I couldn't find what kind of surgery they all had, but Lehtonen's sounds exactly the same. Even the 6-8 week estimation.

Quote:
We are back! Now with some breaking news: Kari Lehtonen underwent another back surgery on Friday. The procedure was to remove edges of bone that were applying pressure to nerve roots in his back at two locations. The surgery was performed by Dr. Paul Maurer at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, N.Y. The locations on the back were different than the location of the surgery he had on July 20.

The team says he will be sidelined for 6 to 8 weeks.
Microdiscectomy

In a microdiscectomy or microdecompression spine surgery, a small portion of the bone over the nerve root and/or disc material from under the nerve root is removed to relieve neural impingement and provide more room for the nerve to heal.

According to Botch this is the same surgery that kept Bertuzzi out for 3 months.

There's several types of herniated disc surgeries that can be described the same way. It's possible it's the same, but honestly... Lehtonen was horribly conditioned, I wouldn't draw too many parallels between his recovery time and Edler's. Three months would still allow him to get back for the playoffs.

A healthy Edler is better than a healthy Salo, yes. Obviously a healthy Salo is better than someone on IR, I don't get why you are trying to twist words around other than to back off your original statement that Salo > Edler.

jesus. that came out of left-field.


horrible injury for edler, and horrible injury for the team. thank god we have Ballard and Salo potentially ready to come of LTIR soon. this is what our depth was built for...let's see how it works.

always hurts to lose a team's best d-man for a few months. but hopefully we have the depth to cope with this loss, and hopefully Edler is able to get completely back up to speed by the playoffs.

Horrible, horrible news....Get better soon Alex! I guess we can find out better how close Salo is to returning. Shockingly bad news though, I thought this was just a simple case of back spasms.

Thank you Gillis for preparing the blueline roster for this kind of thing. (not that you ever want to lose your #1 of course...)

Wow this is horrible, but its not the end of the world.

Hopefully Salo can get fully healthy.

At the very least we should see what Ballard can do with that shot on the PP.

Yes he has.

He just doesnt throw the big hits like Edler does from time to time.

Its not an upgrade, but I dont think the fallout is that big.

Salo is a top-4 defensman (on every team in the league) who has better shut-down abilities, but wont garner the top-lines until his play warrants that and/or the Bieksa-Hamhuis partnership breaks down.

All that said, it effin' sucks that Edler is out.

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Ehrhoff-Tanev
Ballard-Sweatt

So Rome, Alberts, Salo and Edler are potentially out for a while...I'll just say it, thank god for the ASB, Alberts and Rome could be cleared to rotate into the line up, because that line up is less then formidable. If that's what we have to roll for the next few weeks, I just hope Tanev plays like he has been, and Sweatt can stay on the score sheet and show us he can break up a few plays.

Another worry is the PP, we saw it last night with Samuelsson on the "point" on the PP. He gets wrapped up into the Sedins cycle. Edler was willing to shoot more often than not.

I would advise not looking too much into what Vancouver media says. It's at its worst right now, pure doom and gloom.

This team is deep enough.

This came at perfect timing with Alberts, Rome & Salo returning fairly soon....

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Ballard - Tanev
Alberts - Salo
Rome

Gonna be honest, I really missed Salo.

Its clear their wasting no time with the surgery. They are obviously hoping if they waste no time then he can be back for the playoffs and a better player had he not had the surgery and just tried to play through it. Meanwhile they have Salo who can step in and get conditioned(eventually and maybe soon).

Its unfortunate but can really end up being a non issue assuming there are no set backs and he is back in time for the playoffs and can get up to speed quickly. Infact at the end of the day the team COULD be better off by having Salo being able to get properly conditioned for the playoffs at his age. Meanwhile Edler is young and will miss much less time so without set backs he should be able to get back and conditioned pretty quickly come playoff time. By the second round(cross your fingers) the Canucks in thsi scenario could have a healthier and more ready line up had Salo been forced to sit and Edler not had surgery to fix a issue that would effect his play.

Get back here Sami!!!

Man that's really too bad for Alex. He was having his best season of his career. The loss is definitely dampened by the play of Bieksa.

Alberts will be back and if Salo can come back in 3-4 weeks they should still not have a problem getting one of the top 2 seeds in the west.

If Edler is out for the playoffs as well, the Canucks are in trouble. They need this guy for a long run. I can't see them getting past the 2nd round without him. Special teams are vital in a 7 game series and he is the most important weapon on the PP.

I'm not too worried about the PP; Edler is more the trigger man on the unit so Salo should be able to fill that role when he gets back (it's arguable if he wasn't injured it would have been his to begin with this season). Ehrhoff pretty much runs the #1 unit from the back-end, and Hamhuis didn't look terrible there last night...he's shown an ability to get shots through and generate rebounds so he may be able to fill in before Salo is back.

The second unit is a bit of a concern, I don't like either Samuelsson or Raymond back there very much alongside Bieksa. I'm all for giving Ballard a chance to establish some offensive confidence though.
