Obviously you can't tell who is injury prone. People were afraid to pick Olesz because he got so destroyed by Phaneuf. Weiss was smaller. When you pick a smaller, more frail player, you're more likely to see them get injured.

My point was more that we KNOW that most of these guys will get hurt over the course of the season so we should be better prepared for it. How many years has it happened? You need to expect it and be ready for it. Fortunately our defense was "stacked" in the preseason, so now we're not as screwed as we would have been. Our offense though should have seen this coming. A small guy like Weiss won't hold up over the course of a year going up against the massive, top line centers that the other teams posess.
