I am more worried that Kesler becomes the new Salo, injury prone.

He plays the game incredibly hard for an "injury prone" player.

Not many guys would go 6 games on a broken foot.

This guy is as tough as it gets...

Booth having surgery today per Gillis interview on 1040, and many tweets.

May be ready in playoffs.

Surgery for an ankle sprain? That seems odd to me..

I heard Farhan Lalji on the TEAM the other day say it was more than just an ankle sprain, but he wouldn't go further into it...I guess he was right.

According to the interwebs, a high ankle sprain, or ankle syndesmosis injury; "if at any point during treatment an X-ray shows a diastasis, surgery will probably be recommended."
Surgery for a syndesmosis injury is designed to reduce the separation between the tibia and fibula. If there are no barriers keeping the tibia and fibula apart, the surgeon may simply need to place screws through the two bones to hold them together while the ligaments heal.
In summary, sounds like Booth may have a diastasis of tibia and fibula due to a severe sprain or tear of the syndesmotic ligaments...sounds shitty.

We better hope so... because if he's not medically cleared until the fall we have to wait until next offseason to buy him out.

Maybe this summer they can put honey on him and use him as bear bait.

Better $$$ spent on that than him.

We have not been told the specifics of Booth's injury (ie, does he have complete syndesmotic ligament tears or not...if he does it is a grade 3 injury, if he doesn't it is a grade 2) nor the specifics of the surgical treatment (was it an arthroscopic procedure with cleaning up torn ligamentous debris or was it an open procedure with screw fixation). Without this knowledge it is hard to know what his recovery course might be expected to be.

Having said that, either way, expecting him back in 8 weeks is very very optimistic and expecting him to be out 12 to 24 weeks (and it could be longer) would be a more realistic way to plan. If I was Booth I would be parroting Kessler and saying I won't be back until the injury is perfectly healed as if he comes back too soon he risks long term complications and perhaps even the end of his career.

The only plausible reason I can think of that MG would tell the media that Booth might be back in 8 weeks is to use that possibility as a reason for whatever player personnel decisions he makes from now till the trade deadline, and to give the Canuck faithful some hope (at least those that believe that Booth's presence would make a difference).

No way he gets flown out of Vancouver for arthroscopic surgery. Definitely more of a major surgery methinks. I would say he's out a minimum 3 months, but likely more given the scope of the injury. Canucks will have to be DEEP into the playoffs for Booth to play hockey again this year.

My buddy who is a general surgeon and trained in sports medicine said arthroscopic surgery is a relatively common and easy task. So you would think that a local Canuck doctor would be able to perform this. But then again, maybe the Canucks' "arthroscopic specialist" was out of town? I guess we don't know until the Canucks release what kind of surgery he actually had...

Or Booth has his own doctor(s) he feels comfortable with. It is not uncommon for players, in any sport, to have specialists they have dealt with before and prefer to use.
The only HW the Canucks need

I think what is being asked is a link to where it says Booth didn't have the surgery locally.

I don't remember hearing the flew Booth somewhere else for his surgery.
