The injury and severity of injury sure does matter. And you make it sound like Malkin is some superbeing that is unaffected by injury due to his age. Of course things like age play a factor, but saying that there's no difference between an ACL/MCL tear that's keeping Malkin away from his job for 6+ months as opposed to (what can only be assumed to be) a mild concussion that warranted 9 games off is like saying a broken leg and bruised finger bone are the same thing. The type/severity of the injury plays a huge part in how the player is able to rebound.
