04:03 PM ET 04.17 | Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson could return from a lacerated Achilles Tendon in time for the playoffs, according to general manager Bryan Murray on Wednesday. 70 percent of Karlsson's Achilles was lacerated in February in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Many believed that would result in the end of Karlsson's season. Apparently, thats not the case. While he might be ahead of schedule, a premature return could prove catastrophic. This is arguably one of, if not the best, young defenders in the game today. Coming back too soon could result in further injury, which could delay his development.

Does it matter who they play? They lack certain ingredients to go anywhere.
