Hey Sens fans, figured I'd offer some insight on his surgery because I just recently had the same surgery. Basically the doctors just stitched up his labrum, and maybe shaved part of the bone off that was causing it to tear. Recovery is quick, I was off crutches in 5 days, and walking fine after 2 weeks. The 6-8 month recovery timetable is essentially how long he will have pain for, not necessarily his timetable for return. I had my surgery October 2nd, and my doctor told me I could return to Hockey in February, if I can play through the pain. Once Cowen gets past his 6-8 months, his hip will be as good as new, unless they didn't do anything about the part of the bone that tore it in the first place. One problem may be that this is likely to happen in both hips however.

I expect his recovery to be much closer to the 6 months than the 8. Maybe even shorter than that. Hope I cleared some things up for you guys and didn't cause any more worry.
