I guess in the end it truly Klefbom's decision but I am not so sure things work that way. Can't the manager or coach shutdown a player that is not 100% and supercede his decision to play? Worse yet if it is our management or coach deciding he's still good to go.

This is unnecessary risk for a season that is long over. I cannot believe the risk of further injury is 0 as that's just unrealistic. I also cannot believe the possibility that he is ready for training camp is 100% either.


Really good question. It would be interesting to see what is in a usual contract. I would think there would be clauses about providing any medical treatment the player needs. But I would be surprised if the team can force a player to get a procedure done without his consent. It's his body. Even if the surgery is routine, there is always a risk with any surgery. So he'd have to agree to taking on that risk. I would assume the player would have to agree to take whatever medical advice he gets and as long as he gets whatever needs done in a reasonable time frame, the team has to live with it.

I supposed the team could always just not play him but then you run the risk of pissing off the player. It sounds like this "clean out" will happen next week so I guess if no further damage can be done to it, no harm done. Based on what I just listened to McLellen say on Oilers NOW. Sounds like this isn't a new thing. He had it last year as well. He was getting treatments last year and they worked well, this year they didn't work. Sounds like it is the same shoulder that he had surgery on before. I sure hope this isn't an ongoing thing with that shoulder.
