Bure had a lot to do with acceleration- I remember that turn he tried to make at top speed and his knee blew out-
I'd blame the injury of many top players on their skills. They are often so good at deceiving the opposition that the other players automatic reaction is one bordering self-defense. Eg. the other guy totally turned you around and your reflex is to try to get in front of him but you only have time to get your knee in front of his... YOu know what I mean.
