Talbot's Surgery Successful

The Penguins webpage is reporting that Talbot's shoulder surgery was successful and recovery time is expected to be about four to five months which ends the speculation. It would seem that Talbot will miss at least the first month (probably more) of this upcoming season.

The surgery was to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

“Max has played with this problem for quite a while and we all agreed it was best for him to have the surgery at this time,” Penguins general manager Ray Shero said. “Although he will miss training camp and the start of the season, the doctors expect him to make a complete recovery.”
That is simply amazing! He was playing through this shoulder injury and is probably something that is a common occurence for these players to be on the ice for gametime in spite of injuries yet it's something that goes without mention / notice. You have to give these guys A LOT of credit!!!
