    This is kind of what we were hearing when the news started to break on what the issue was. Obviously it's not as simple as going under the knife and rehabbing back to normal

    With his arthritis issue getting the surgery means he will have to give up pro sports. If he doesn’t there is a small chance he can rehab to the point of playing again (though never really at his peak level).

    I got the impression that he needs to see specialists to get surgical opinions but he can't fly around the globe to get the necessary opinions due to Covid.

    Do you want to go into an American hospital right now and have major surgery?

    Mike Smith out a few weeks.

    All of a sudden our goaltending situation with Forsberg having been claimed by the Jets is dire.

    Is there any sort of information at all on what's keeping Smith out?

    it's only dire if Koskinen goes down

    Imo it's worth signing someone else in case Smith isnt ready in a few weeks according to plan

    It's probably better for the team that it never is made public

    Oilers fans: "Man, I wish we didn't have Smith as our backup goaltender."
