2 big differences in my opinion.

1) Frankie Kaberle never had a physical edge to him and even after recovering, he played the same way.

2) Kaberle decided to wait until the right before the 06-07 season to have his surgery (September I believe). Ruutu is getting this taken care of before the end of this season so he has approximately 5 months of head start on recovery time.

I'm not suggesting that Ruutu will be 100% by the start of the season, but it is a different situation that Kaberle.
