I see some people still think Hemsky's been cured of his shoulder problems. I've said it before and I'll say it again: that's not how these things work. Shoulder injuries, particularly of the torn labrum variety, cannot be 100% cured through surgery. A player will always be at a higher risk of reinjury, regardless of how many surgeries they have. Eric Fehr is a great example. He's had 4 separate shoulder surgeries due to labrum tears, including surgery on both shoulders a couple off seasons ago. We were told he would be better than every, and he was now at less risk than a typical player. One year later, and he's bring shipped to Winnipeg for a 4th and about to undergo another surgery. Hemsky is in the exact same situation. Unless he drastically changes his game and essentially becomes a floater, he will continue to have shoulder issues until he gets knocked out of the league. Sorry to burst your collective bubble, but it had to be said.
