Lemieux, Palffy, and LeClair are all multi-month injuries waiting to happen. I’m not saying they’re bad or that we shouldn’t have them, I personally love to have them all but that’s a whole top line that has a good chance of missing time. Crosby isn’t used to the NHL yet and may wear down towards the end of the season. Recchi is getting older, though he is resiliant. Malone, like any power forawrd, risks injury because of his style of play. You don’t fight off 225lb D-men while trying to deflect 90MPH shots wihtout getting banged up a long the way.
If we’re lucky then our injuries will be far and few between, and no key players will miss time all at once. If we’re unlucky then we’re the 03-04 kings.]]>
