Edlers's seems beyond slow.....REALLY slow. Slow skating, slow shooting, slow reacting, and NEVER hits/checks but tries to use his stick to get at the puck. I wonder if his back is worse than we know?? There has to be SOME reason for all of the above !!??

I'm not sure about any of the reasons for his slowness...

...but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

I would agree. Game before this was the first time I've seen him shy from a collision. He's looked slow skating, particularly his turns. He looks like someone with a lower back injury

Out all the time ive watched Hockey, and just off the top of my head, i can think of 2 players that played decently after back operations. Danny Sedin and Mario.

Mario was a freak so it did not take long for him to shape into form. Danny was smart and got procedures immediately after seasons end, so he had long to recover and train lightly. He was still good.

Other than that, everyone else takes a long while to recover from back surgery. (think about Bertuzzi, it took him years to get back his game after surgery).

Im of the solid opinion that Edler is indeed playing thru pain. He must be smart and play within his means and not do too much until he feels better. Perhaps his confidence has been shaken because of it.

We'll never know until the season is over and they finally reveal the problem only for him to have yet another surgery.

Then the blueline sacrifices Eddies size.

Personally i dont have a problem with Edlers play. Yes, it can be maddening to watch, if thats all you are looking for are his mistakes. But he has great upside and can show it.

But he shouldnt be depended on plays that require him playing out of his element when injured. He really needs to cement in him a simple game until he is fully mobile.

Edler should have had surgery much sooner.

He is medically clear to play, and only the player can say otherwise. And he can, its just not up to the healthy level for what the team needs

What the hell are you talking about. Edler said it very openly BEFORE the season, he has a bad back and it is chronic and it will likely be something that will stay with him for the rest of his career. It is not secret at all.

Does that mean he will keep sucking like he is now for the rest of his career? If that's the case, MG should buy him out.

Well just slip him some morphine in his orange mocha frappuccino before games. His play is unacceptable right now.

He looks injured to me, hence, not playing his usual Edler self.

Apparently, it's good enough to get him signed for another 6 years.

Exactly. Injuries or the officiating.......anything but the actual truth. This team has no accountability, no determination, and ineffective coaching.
