Could be wrong, but I think I read somewhere that he won't play any games in October.  Anyone else read this?

Technically that’s not true.  Over the last couple years he’s caught several “breaks”. One in the knee, one in the back......

zing!

I'd rather have a controlled rehab then him trying to go all out, maybe overdoing it just to try to prove a point.  It's the timing of his knee healing up that's most important right now. Dec-Jan is fine by me. We got Benn and Myers going now and Hughie needs some game time.

We've waited this long for OJ a few more months ain't going to make difference in the long run.

 

 

Well said, I know many of us want to see him play some games as soon as possible. The fact of the matter is you can never rush a rehab of a knee, back and head injury. Like you said, we are playing with house money for when OJ is 100%. At this point we have the depth to be patient for when he’s ready, and I’m ok with that.

JB made that comment but said he would not be playing in the preseason and would play IN October.  I think the Comets first preseason game on October 6.  They don't get started until after the NHL starts.

Yes, I checked it this morning after a funny face was made on post.  Benning was clearly stating that Juolevi would be playing games in October.

I hope they give him proper "load management" so he can recover, get up to speed, and develop. The kid can't afford to lose another developmental year after losing the last one. This year will be huge for him.

It's soo interesting to see Juolevi's development path from a highs and lows perspective. 

Literally draft year, won everything possible. OHL CUP, MEM CUP, WJC GOLD. Most points by a u18 D man. 

Then injuries, moving teams/leagues/countries, more injuries, moving teams/leagues/countries again, and injuries again. 

I don't think I've seen such a contrast, but it has likely been a humbling experience which we all need from time to time. I really hope this year the ship starts to right itself and we see him have a consistent, and positive growth year on the ice. I think there has been a lot of growth off the ice though which has been important too.

Knee surgeries usually take 6 months to heal to 90% of the end result, that he has rehabbed for as long as he has and is still questionable is almost one in 100,000. McDavid just had the same surgery 3 months ago. Ditto with his back, Boser's was way more serious, so was Edler's, both were back much sooner. Read this, there may be some "other" issue, something not being made readily public. Remember Kassian's issue was kept pretty quiet for 4 years. Is video addition much worse than other additions?

Just saying, maybe there is something else.

You have the education, training and expertise in Orthpedic Surgery and specific knowledge of OJ's medical history  to make that kind of assessment?  

 

Well if so, way to violate the patient confidentiality ethics, and if not, you literally are pointing to an apple and a watermelon and saying they are the same thing.

Knee surgeries are not all the same. McDavid did not even have surgery, he injured his PCL which heals quite well without surgery. Juolevi had a meniscal tear repaired which is an entirely different structure than ligaments and has much less vascularization which means slower/worse healing.

I do work in healthcare, as a paramedic.  Not completely clueless.  Unlike Dr Recchi.

Is there someone else we can call in an emergency then?

Besides being an area that has poor circulation, thus slower healing time, we don't know the extent of his injury.  

 

From his play and other challenges, OJ may have had more than one thing wrong with his knee or his back when he was laid up.  Everyone heals at different rates.  This cautionary approach to OJ likely is to prevent him from pushing too far, too fast.  Something he may have done previously.

Nope, 

 

I won't preform surgery on your knee, but I can do alot when someone is really sick or injured.  

 

I promise Dr Recchi isn't my partner on the ambulance.
