07:08 AM ET 04.26 | After two days off the ice, T.J. Oshie will return to practice on Friday with an eye on being ready for Game 1 of the second season. Only 10 days ago, Oshie underwent surgery to repair his injured left ankle, which after two weeks off the ice revealed a stress fracture. The right winger skated Tuesday, a week after the surgery, but then underwent two days of off-ice treatment. Today he's expected to ramp up his return. "He'll be a full-time participant starting (Friday)," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He'll be ready to go." Oshie is not expected to play Saturday when the Blues wrap up the regular season against Chicago, but the opening game of the playoffs -- Tuesday or Wednesday -- is a legitimate target.

It seems to me that either:
a) Guys are healing (alledgedly) way faster than they used to...or
B) Every injury is misdiagnosed as to seem far worse than it really is

Or maybe they have some magic potion they're giving them to either heal faster or not feel the pain.

I think they just aren't saying much in the beginning or throughout to let us know what is really going on. They made that huge mistake with Crosby and look what happen. I guess better keep people in the dark, come back sooner, then say: "Hey, it's not that bad...." have people waiting, and have a Sid situation happen, where they misdiagnosed, or it was worse than thought, etc. Just my opinion.

Yeah, it's called HGH. And when the NHL does finally start testing for it, you're going to see smaller players and longer injuries.

don't know about that, but i was reading in the paper this am that Karlsson was asked how he was before last night's game. He said he didn't know the %, but he felt well enough to play.
I seem to remember a lot of guys saying things like that over the years, only to realise that maybe FEELING well enough and BEING well enough to play are different matters. They all want to get back out there as soon as possible, especially at this time of the season, (queue the Zombies references) but I've seen more than one young career forever altered by coming back too soon

I was just thinking that myself when I saw this. Him, Karlsson ( who looked very good last night and said he can skate like an NHLer but still not quite up to where he was last year............)

And I don't know that you can misdiagnose a torn Achilles. I would hope not anyway..........

It wasn't "torn" Birdy. It was sliced like a HC tee shot.

A clean cut is better than a tear. Who was I talking to about that recently? Oh, it was about somebody giving birth. (You're welcome people!!)

That's only for the ones that leave Calgary. They only have two seasons, winter and mosquito, and I think every thing's still frozen.
