It happens more than you think. Recent example, Sharks are in the 3rd round and currently missing one regular in Huskins (their #6 defenseman). Are having day-to-day/7-10 days injuries common? Sure, like you said happens to every team. But having a bunch of injuries needing multiple players to miss months? Not so much, just bad luck. We don't have it the worst, but as an organization we could definitely have it much better in terms of injuries. Not many playoff teams have multiple big minute players out for the season or indefinitely.
