08:25 AM ET 08.31 | In the event the NHL season starts on time, Winnipeg may well be without one of its top blue-liners for more than half of it. Zach Bogosian will undergo surgery by a renowned physician in Ohio, Friday, for what the team calls a "chronic ligament tear in his right wrist." The operation will keep Bogosian out for up to six months, a team spokesman said, pegging his potential return for the end of February. "During off-season training, Zach experienced discomfort and was limited in his performance," Jets head physician Dr. Peter MacDonald said. ... One report had surgeries like Bogosian's calling for a return in three months, but the Jets say that's only if everything goes perfectly during the surgery and recovery.

I'm guessing that it was torn and then never healed. Resting it would probably take even longer for it to come back together.

It sounds similar to, "I'm kind of pregnant." Either you are or you're not...However, I can accept Burgh-Fan's explanation.

That's what happens when a player spends too much time thinking about Semin.
