Perhaps something lost in the translation about pro hockey. Its one thing to tell a hiker, yeah continue to hike, you can have the surgery later when you get back, vs applying this logic to somebody that in an occupation where they get more impact on it every night then anybody else would get in a year at work and play..
You must not have a very high opinion of doctors if you think they aren't capable of applying a diagnosis to a person and consider their profession in their opinion. I find that pretty insulting to their intelligence.
