This is great news.....and since he's Swiss.....he's naturally better at timing his recovery than some Italian from Beantown

I'm glad the surgery was a success.Let's hope the team is still hanging around,close enough in the standings to make a playoff push when he returns.

Depends on when the Isles say he'll be back.

f they say December, then yes he'll thankfully be back by February.

Good stuff. Right on time for when standings finally start spreading out and the playoff push is in full swing.

At least he'll be well rested.

Forgive me for being pessimistic, but the Isles haven't exactly delivered on their promises in the past when it comes to players return from injury.

Glad to hear the surgury was a success, but I'm not holding my breath that he's back at all this season.

What promise have the isles made here?Botta's blog says " There is a report out of Switzerland that Mark Streit has already undergone successful shoulder surgery at the Cleveland Clinic and there is optimism for a return in February. This would not be a total shock because teams often cautiously over-estimate a player’s return so it’s a bonus if he returns “early.” The Islanders have not made an announcement yet on Streit’s prognosis.

Outside the surgery was a success, Does it really matter if he returns this year.
Before his injury, contrary to most of the optimistic fans here,the team was no
where close to a playoff team. The injury just assured us of the fact but Opokso
out as well and I still hear this "if we can hang in there"

Come on guys, watch their games. Though the future upside potential is there, the present upside is not so unless there are 2 offesive bodies added upfront.
FORGET THE PLAYOFFS

Forgive me as well but if we arent anywhere close to playoff contention in February and Streit is really ready I wouldnt bring him back this season and especially not at the top pairing. Let him rest and heal fully you dont want to risk it and have him play 15-20 min TOI per game just so he can get his feet back

Yes I think it does.If for nothing else,then to ease Streit's mind about his shoulder following major surgery.

The isles improved 18 pts last season and finished 9 pts out of the playoffs.With an improved defense and hoping for more consistency from their developing youngsters,I expected them to be closer to the 8th playoff seed then another high lottery pick.

Okposo's out 2-3 months,not the entire season.I'm now hoping to read the same welcome news after KO's surgery:it went well and he could be back earlier then expected.If not,then let's see who steps up.

Unless Snow's involved in secret trade talks,the Isles are not likely trading for 2 offensive bodies upfront.

They're hoping for continued developing from their youngsters.

Yes, the isles are secretive when it comes to injuries.There's been no comment yet from the team about this info.

However,Botta is saying this report is being reported by a source in Switzerland.
For all we know Streit could have gotten the timeline from his surgeon and passed it along to the press in Switzerland.He's extremely popular back home.His injury and surgery will be big news.

Yes 18pts was a huge jump but remember, moulson came out of nowhere and Roloson was responible for 9 wins on his own, don't expect that return again

"Both Mark Streit and Kyle Okposo underwent successful surgery yesterday at the Cleveland Clinic. Shoulder specialist Anthony Minaci, the same doctor who repaired Doug Weight's shoulder back in March, performed both procedures."

After reading the comments from Tavares' skating coach,his head coach and his personnel trainer about how hard Tavares worked this offseason,I expect Tavares will be better prepared fo the grind of the long nhl season.I don't expect him to physically hit a wall again and go through a long scoring drought like he did in his rookie yr.

As much as I liked Biron,he had a very disappointing yr for the isles last yr.They got little contribution from Biron and the recovering DiPietro.DiPi looks healthier and I think he can take some of the load off Rolison this yr.

Getting Streit back at any point this season is a bonus. But let's not expect him to be the All-Star he's been the past two years once he's back. Players need to round themselves back into form. See: Beltran, Carlos, the last two weeks he played this season.

Ok... so the surgery was a "success". That's great and all but when is surgery NOT a success? I mean really... when it comes to athletes, have you ever heard a report saying, "INSERT NAME just had UN-successful surgery to repair his shoulder".

Don't we have a goalie that's had a few "unsuccessful" surgeries? Or maybe they were so successful he just wanted more.

You're right though. I guess an unsuccessful surgery would mean opening someone up and realizing there was more damage than initially thought. Either that or a doc f'ing up, but I don't think that happens too often in the world of pro sports.

I'm not holding my breath on Streit returning this season at all let alone February. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

I'm more upset about Okposo really. I was so looking forward to seeing him for 82 games this year. I was expecting huge things out of him.

Aren't all surgeries successful? You never hear someone's surgery was unsuccessful. The recovery is what's important.

Here's to speedy and successful recoveries for both.

Generally hockey players that come back from shoulder surgery end up as a shell of themselves for a year or two.

Take a look at Vinny...only this year is he starting to get back to where he was before his surgery.
