Its obvious in this that RNH all along had been getting the shoulder dinged and it was impacting him. Its obvious that this was flaring up due to ongoing insult to injury.
A shoulder doesn't have to be seperated for it to spur further injury. In a vicious contact sport like hockey it should be obvious that any shoulder injury is going to put the player in a vulnerable position of risking much further injury.
In a sense turning a small kid out there with one arm tied behind his back playing with killers and telling him "play safe" is a recipe for ensuing disaster.
Well he missed what 1 game due to his shoulder? Doesn't sound like it was that bad. He was still competing and hitting people. You don't throw a guys whole season cause his shoulder is dinged up. You get professional opinions and do the best you can. In this case, the professionals said it wasn't a danger and he could wait for surgery until a later date. I will take their opinion over yours.
