This is the kind of injury that follows someone throughout their career, and can never be totally fixed through surgery. That's why everyone's scared off of him, and why he doesn't have any trade value here.
The link doesn't mention how effective surgery is. Hemsky has had surgery on both shoulders and I've heard that shoulders are supposed to be like brand new afterwards. I'm not a doctor and I'm skeptical about anything related to Hemsky's health but I don't think it's fair to say, after the dual surgeries, that theres an 80% likelihood of recurrence. That was only BEFORE the surgeries. Now there is a significantly lower risk. I could be wrong on the overall effectiveness of shoulder surgery.
