By everything I've heard and was rumored the medical professionals were stating surgery was required.
Also when the medical establishment states something like "continued use won't worsen the injury" they are generally citing normal use citation. Not speaking about the high impact and dangerous world of pro hockey where shoulders as a rule are subjected to as much insult and injury as any pro sport.
Perhaps something lost in the translation about pro hockey. Its one thing to tell a hiker, yeah continue to hike, you can have the shoulder surgery later when you get back, vs applying this logic to somebody that in an occupation where they get more impact on a shoulder every night then anybody else would get in a year at work and play..
