07:26 AM ET 06.14 | While Claude Julien crosses his fingers for Nathan Horton, the forward may be dealing with a more extensive issue. According to a source with direct knowledge of the situation, [Horton] has been dealing with chronic left shoulder subluxation, which caused him to leave Wednesday's Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals during the first overtime. The injury was originally suffered when Horton fought Penguins forward Jarome Iginla on April 20. ... Horton has received shots prior to each game to deal with the pain, and though his shoulder has popped out of its socket at points during the playoffs, Wednesday's occurrence, when he bumped into Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson in front of the Chicago net on a Bruins power play, was the most painful thus fair.

[Horton] has been dealing with chronic left shoulder subluxation ...

.... which, in plain English, means he has a sore shoulder.

Hang on a second here. How can it be a "chronic" shoulder (whatever) when it first started bothering him when he fought Iggy a week ago? I thought chronic had to be long term.

"Chronic" is what the reporter was smoking.

Just wrap it up in duct tape until the finals are over. ;^)

It's painful to Horton in that the chronicness of it will probably see his new contract (from whoever signs him) be valued about 25% of what it would've been had he been healthy.

Unless Burke gets hired in the next two weeks. Fingers crossed.

I thought he was a scout master at Disneyland.

I'm calling in sick today, going to tell the boss my subluxation is acting up again.

No, his injury would have to be more repetitive. ...wait, that's what chronic means? I thought it meant an illegal (in most states) substance.

even so...doesn't chronic denote something more than 2 months?
As in, the Comissioner's chronic facility for making asinine decisions?
