08:14 AM ET 12.14 | Ryan Kesler's new rehab timetable, after offseason shoulder and wrist surgeries, has been pushed back several months, according to agent Kurt Overhardt. "The re-evaluation was positive in that the surgeries were successful," said Overhardt. "However, the compounding nature of both of those surgeries being on the same side of the body, it's been very hard to properly rehab either one of the them -- particularly the shoulder -- because that's obviously a big deal. I don't think it's fair to have any sort of time frame when he's going to be 100 per cent and cleared to play. I don't have a crystal ball and it's certainly months away, it's not weeks away. It's several months away."

They are arguing over our money. They are all so greedy. Don't be one of Bettman's sheep

Take all the time you need, Ryan. You can stick a fork in this season.

He'll be mad when he gets to camp and has to write an essay on "What I did on my Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer vacation."

I don't really understand why he needs to be 100% to be able to throw himself to the ground. Maybe with a little bit of actual pain he can do a better job selling the dives to the refs.

Oh my, that had me in stitches...

but if he screws up his other shoulder, then we're on the hook for his disability pension!

That'd be nothing but a hardcore PITA.

Ah well, as long as it's legible.

This guy has a lot of hustle...its just too bad he's always fighting injury or a nagging injury..he'd be a total beast if he was 100% healthy...he can play on my team any day.

But only after he has been certified ok to play LOL
