The type/severity of the injury plays a huge part in how the player is able to rebound.
Obviously but I said that because I didn't feel like arguing about the details of the injuries. My point was in the end all that matters is recovery. I wasn't calling Malkin a superhuman I was merely stating that I think he'll be fine his age will factor into his recovery kind of like Prospal and Drury's age factored into theirs. I never tried to say an ACL/MCL tear was less severe than a mild concussion I was saying it depends on the individual and how they approach recovery.
