Does anyone know of any record on the typical recovery arc for this type of injury and surgery? I know there are some injuries where a player typically takes at least a whole season to re-attain his previous production, whereas some procedures see production return (at least close) to normal after a brief recuperation.
In my league injured players tend to get heavily downgraded at the draft (eg I got Crosby in the late second round last year). I also believe I have an excellent chance of making the playoffs in my H2H league. If so, I really only would need Kesler to perform in March/April. Is that a reasonable expectation?
