Not to mention the Leafs have enough injury prone players to start a small island with, just not the right time nor the right player
Please stop mentioning the Leafs i never said anything about Hemsky going there. I was only addressing his injuries. Gaborik and Statsny have both rebounded from earlier injury troubles, as have numerous others. I could see your point if we were comparing the last 2 season to only 2 prior but 7 prior seasons is far to big a sample size to dismiss in favour. Also Hemsky is in his prime, he's not old by any means his body can recover. The injury he suffered the past 2 seasons is considered rarely reoccuring once fixed by surgery. The particular injury is more important than anything when determinig the likelihood of him suffering another.
