Kicking a ball 30 yards for a 218 lb athlete who (no doubt) grew up playing ball in Europe;

Would qualify as relaxing and light movement. Teeing off a driver from 300 yards would be a much more explosive a movement and much more dangerous. Or planting it from 60 yards...

:picard:

My guess is he would be playing if it were the regular season...


I guess most of you missed this part...



The injury obviously isn't serious if he's out kicking a football 30 yards. That would be incredibly painful with disk issues...

Relax.

What do you mean it doesn't? If anything it's a prime example of it, because Gillis didn't want to resign Mitchell because of his concussion issues, he was scared to take the gamble on him, even after tests had proved he was cleared to play and Mitchell himself came out and said he was ready to play again, and Gillis played the safe path instead.

It happened once. That doesn't mean Gillis doesn't like signing players coming off surgery.

And if you look at the defence that Gillis has built. They're all mobile guys who can move the puck. I don't think Willie Mitchell was going to be re-signed regardless of his injury status since he isn't a puck mover and has bumped heads with Alain Vigneault.

Not good for Edler to have back issues when he's so young. Could affect the longevity of his career.

Just listening to Taylor on 1040. He reported MG said Edler has a bulging disk in his back.

Edler had surgery due to similar injury couple of years ago. This is obviously not good news for Edler and the Canucks.


Edler needs to see a back specialist then and start working on his core strength. No reason a highly trained professional athlete should blow a disc in his back (unless he's done something ridiculously stupid or it's a very minor bulge).

It seems you may be a trained professional in this field.

It's never as black and white as we are told. In one of his interviews he said his back was bugging him for 'years' yet he went in for surgery after missing a game after a game VS. Dallas where he crushed Jamie Benn in open ice but looked very awkward doing it and also fell.

Is it possible that he already had a bulging disc that herniated as a result of that hit, which is why he required prompt surgery? Yes but this is pure speculation no matter how logical it may seem.

But it very well could be an issue of concern for Edler and the team because herniated discs do not 'heal' or go back to normal. Ever.

Having said that, professional athletes have access to some of the best medical personnel and equipment available so his treatment will differ vastly from the average Joe going through the system (who will typically get their vertebrae fused together).

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

The rest of the team is saying"Those lucky sob's!" because the injured players stay on payroll until they are healed.

Yes, I am thank you. Like the other poster said unless it's something that's been naggin him a long time, he shouldn't be herniating discs.

Either way I don't see Gillis giving him any more money or term than he did with the twins.

No player wants to be injured - injuries shorten careers.

Edler will be fine I'm sure. Top medical professionals are helping him and there currently is no season so there's no urgency for him to rush back.
