    Last thread hit 1k and "needed work anyway". :skeptic:

    Osacr Klefbom - IR, Hand injury sustained December 11th blocking a shot against the Avalanche. Had surgery to repair one or more fingers. Estimated 6-8 weeks recovery time, putting his return at around February/March.

    Kris Russell - IR, believe there is some hope he could play the 27th versus the Canucks, but was described as early.

    8 weeks from surgery would be the end of the first week of February. March would be 12 weeks from surgery.

    Recovery from injury and game readiness aren't usually on the same timetable. This is also Klefbom we're talking about, so I added time to compensate for the infection and eventual finger amputation. Underpromise and overdeliver.

    Bah it’s broken fingers not an ACL. Though you are right it is Klefbom. Probably get Ebola somehow.

    Sounds like Larsson is back at practice today.

    That was an unnecessary 24 hour scare.

    Yep that was terrifying. Benning or something on the top pairing.

    Klefbom will be back in 3-4 weeks IMO (and it's already been almost 2 weeks). Gulutzan had the exact same injury with Gaudreau and they got him back in 3 weeks. They're just gonna have to numb the pinkie.

    Sounds like a plot to a horror movie to me.

    Yep Gaudreau was out of the lineup for 17 days after the surgery. Scored 11 points in the following 8 games so it's not like he seemed to be hampered by the finger post-surgery. If Klefbom is able to rehab as quickly as Gaudreau that would be early January. Obviously all injuries aren't the same, but hopefully it'll be closer to mid-january than Feb/March.

    Do we even know what Russell's injury is?

    I'm starting to think that even Russell hasn't been told what his injury is

    Probably needs a new transfer case. Old 4x4 has been putting in some heavy work this year.

    Hope you are right. Maybe they can get him some good Blow Hall used to do and sprinkle it on the pinky. That would numb it good

    Oh boy, we would be in the draft lotto then. I don't want that. If anything, what has been proved is you can't have enough defence. Hate to talk about previous trades, and I like Larsson, but I would have loved to have Weber. He would have come in and our young d would learn from him for years. You can draft all the d you want but if you don't surround them with good vets, they are doomed.

    Finger surgery. Johnny might have broke them by shaking them too hard though.

    Makes no sense to mebut ok.

    I don't usually talk about a Calgary player like they have any sort of importance to me.

    No. Christmas Eve, Christmas and Boxing Day are mandated days off in the CBA. No games, no practice, no travel.

    Not much news...or new news I should say, but Sekera should be back pretty darn soon.

    Edmonton Oilers defenceman Andrej Sekera nearing end of recovery road

    The thing that was stuck in my mind was he was rehabbing his knee and Achilles but his knee should have been all healed up by now.

    Maybe this extra time off will have let his knee heal all that much more. I hope he can regain his 16-17 form because he will be such a welcomed addition on the blue line.
