in other words if the surgery fixes the problem, he'll be a valuable player in the future...he kept reinjuring it cause it was never fully healed, which it hopefully will be after he recovers from that surgery.

and if he gets hurt insurance picks up the salary and it most likely won't count against the cap so nothing to lose.
A better track record for being an NHL player prior to the Shoulder injuries.
