he could have had the surgery in january and be only 2-3 months away from being fully recovered.... this would have allowed him to get in 2 months of training for next season (which is the important season anyhow, where we expect to challenge for the playoffs).... instead of that reasonable idea, RNH will have surgery sometime in the next week, not be able to train at all, and likely be pushed back into action a little too soon next november

just a ridiculously stupid decision to let him play this season, inexcusable
It's shoulder discomfort, it isn't like they had him playing with a separated shoulder. There was a season to be played and the experience you gain from it is important. He can still train this off season it'll just be mostly lower body stuff. He will be a bit late for next season, which is a setback of course but you can't throw a guys season away needlessly when so many people are counting on him. The risk here was minimal.
