    Can anyone explain to me what's up with Klefbom?
    Is he healthy? Is he playing through injuries?

    I wish someone would tell us what this “procedure” is. I also don’t understand if it’s going to require further surgery in the off season why can’t we just do it now?

    what the hell is going on with Klefbom, how the **** is he playing this week, and then being shut down next week?

    Um...why is he playing if they know he needs and is getting season ending surgery?

    WTF is the point of him playing when we're already bottom in the standings with few games remaining. Shut him down, give him his surgery, and then he'll have more time to heal. It makes absolutely no sense at all.

    McLellan says because Klef wants to play.

    I think this is a case where the team needs to be the big boys with the big picture view and say no, like when a goalie thinks he can play all 82.

    McLellan says zero chance of making it worse, but he also says it's an injury that has been getting progressively worse over years now for Klef and treatments aren't working anymore. So, which is it? Guess we can just hope he doesn't take an awkward hit or a bad spill and ends up needing some extra work beyond what is scheduled.

    Yeah, no **** eh? All it would take is one awkward hit, and that injury of his will get worse. There's literally no good outcome out of this. Especially when Klefbom has been playing poorly all year, the best option would be to shut him down for his surgery, and then let him heal. Oilers management/coaching have no damn clue.

    Happy to hear Klefbom will be getting the surgery now, rather than waiting until the end of the year. We need him and Larsson to be 100% at the start of the next season.

    Do we know if Klef will actually be healthy for the start of the year? Has the team released anything at all about the surgery? What it is, what its repairing, how long he'll be out, etc

    Seems like he'll have a full summer to train.

    Yeah, that is actually really promising news. It couldn't have been anything too serious you would think if he can start working out by mid-May or so. He should be pretty close to fully recovered by next season you would think.

    Gregor just tweeted out that the procedure Klefbom had was essentially a vacuum out of 22 bone chips. The guy was playing with that all year long.

    I don’t know if any of you have had bone chips in any of your joints - I have. A lot less than 22 and it felt like my ankle was covered in sandpaper on the inside. Poor Klefbom. That had to hurt like hell.

    Yeah, that doesn't sound fun at all. Hopefully this doesn't have any long term affects on his shoulder.

    I distinctly remember Hall saying after his shoulder surgery that it would never be the same. Well, clearly it didn't have that much of an effect. I think sometimes that we underestimate the resilience of the human body.

    especially in elite athletes that have the ability to rehab daily and build their muscles to support the joint.

    That is one part of it I think, and you are right, the other part is that I also think these are the very top talents in hockey and many of them can adapt/adjust if necessary. They don't need to be the perfect physical specimen, they got to where they are because they can work around problems/issues/injuries.

    Karlsson said something like this after his achilles operation. Either he'd be back in old form (not likely) or he'd have to adapt/adjust his game/skating.
