Pretty spot on, MB. The tear in his labrum is supposed to be a fairly small one, one that should heal back to 100% over time. The CBJ doctors will make the final decision with Ryan in regards to surgery after the weekend, so at this point they aren't even sure if the tear is that bad.

We had a guy on our rec team tear his labrum early last season. It was actually hilarious - he was being hooked, and even though a penalty was being called, he turned around, frustrated, attempted to slough-foot the opponent, missed, and tripped himself, landing awkwardly onto his shoulder. He missed the rest of the hockey season (around 5 months) after surgery.

Edit: Yes, we laugh at these sorts of things in rec league hockey. We're all heartless jerks.
