They say its unrelated but you have to wonder
Yeah I guess now the cats out of the bag that it went back to juniors (whose the source on that?). It seemed like last year it bothered him and for the most part this season he didn't have much zip on his shot and he was unable to make a lot of his trademarked passes at angles that most players only dream of.

After the aggravation early on this season (?VAN game) he was having some difficulty with basic movements with the arm, but it quickly came back to a point he was able to play.

But his strength doing certain movements/motions was severely compromised, and continues to be at this point as well.

For someone whose game relies on intricate finesse movements, it had a huge effect this season.
It was aggravated before the WJC's or at least it was a concern, that is why he flew to Edm. to check it out. As to the bolded, bingo, anyone that knew this kids game knew that he was hurt out there.

Yeah no doubt, I wonder how much of this is the player not wanting to have surgery? The same with Hall and other players in years past?
