We're talking about small injuries. Gill had a minor one in the first couple weeks of the season last year but played through it until we finally sat him out. When he came back he was much better.
Gorges is in the exact same situation imo. Markov wasn't.
I'm saying we rushed him though. At least in minutes played when he was reinserted into the lineup. He played 19+ mins very early on. The team was doing very well, we didnt need him on the ice this long. Even if he practiced with the team and got the green light, I would have eased him in. But then again im just stating my opinion. The whole thing just feels rushed to me.
