    Some more details:

    Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie

    As just reported ono @NBCSN, Dustin Byfuglien recently underwent ankle surgery to take care of unresolved issues from the high-ankle sprain he suffered late last season. What that means for his future and whether it could, in time, lead to his return to WPG remains to be seen.
    Itís certainly premature to say Byfuglien will return to active duty in the NHL this season, but there is a sense if he does feel healthy again, he may be inclined to return at some point.
    tís believed one of the biggest factors why Byfuglien opted not to play this season is because his ankle was so troublesome. That begs the question, why not report to WPG training camp, go on injured reserve, rehab it or get surgery or whatever and get paid to do so?
    Only one person can answer that and, as we know, Byfuglien isnít too forthcoming on personal info. In any case, Byfuglien getting the surgery may, and I stress the word may, open the door to return at some point. That would be contingent on when or if he feels well. We shall see.

    This is the really baffling (buffyling?) part. Buff is going to lose out on at least $5mil he could have earned while rehabbing.

    NHLPA is in discussion with Buffs agent to determine if the injury to his ankle was because of playing hockey, if it is, things could get messy. And I think it's more outside influence on Buff/Union pushing this than Buff. Which is why Buff said he was just not reporting instead of going on LTIR and getting a pay cheque.
