    Anyway, it seems you're the doctor (and I don't even play one on TV!)
    It depends. Most people are good at 6 months, but not always. And it always depends on what's actually damaged in his shoulder joint. He could have a small tear, easy to fix. Or a big, degenerative tear which is hard to repair (i.e. no tissue left to put sutures in).

    But shoulder's generally do recover faster than ACL's.

    If you're in a keeper league, and can get him for cheap, I would still do it.

    Here is another source on Kesler (Fantrax)...looks like January at the earliest.

    Ryan Kesler (shoulder/wrist) will continue to be paid during the lockout while he recovers from shoulder and wrist surgery. Kesler must report to the Rogers Arena every morning by 8 to receive treatment on his injured shoulder and wrist and then skates with Canucks personnel looking on. It was thought that Kesler would be out until December after the shoulder surgery but with the subsequent wrist surgery in June, it appears that Kesler will not be ready until January at the earliest. "I'm still pretty banged up," Kesler said. "Can't shoot. Can't really even stickhandle yet. I think the timeline was December before the wrist. When the wrist came into effect, it really hindered the shoulder. I couldn't do much for eight weeks so that puts you back two months with the shoulder. Strength-wise, I'm pretty far behind." He will return to Cleveland, where he had the surgery, in early December for a re-evaluation.

    I think he'll be ready to go for a December start, personally. He's taking his time which is great to see.

    Agentspeak. As long as he is hurt, he will continue to collect his usual pay. I'll eat some crow if he is still out if/when a January start occurs.

    I am thinking the same thing... I hope we're right!

    But really, I wouldn't even mind having him on IR for the start of the season because that would mean we are actually witnessing an NHL season.

    Agree, sounds like it is just something to be said so he maintains his IR/pay status.

    Gotta love conflicting information. A real roll of the dice for someone acquiring him for this year.

    Lockout could continue. He may comeback right after it ends. He may really be months out before returning.

    According to Fantrax here is an update on his condition...doesn't look promising.

    Ryan Kesler's agent, Kurt Overhardt, didn't provide an encouraging injury update for Vancouver center's return from off-season shoulder and wrist surgeries. "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 percent 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." Canucks assistant GM Laurence Gilman said that Kesler being months away from medical clearance was "news to [him]," but he also didn't have a timetable available for when Kesler would be fully recovered. If the NHL gets a shortened season in the near future then drafting Kesler could be very risky, as it doesn't look like he will be ready any time soon.

    I'm concerned about the effect the injury will have on his strength in his wrist/shoulder given the nature of the injury...
