That said, injuries like this one are why I feel the 35+ rule needs to be revisited. There need to be exceptions. This was a freak incident that had nothing to do with age and/or wear and tear. Same with Lappy. If a team signs an older player who has a history of knee issues, and then that player goes down with a knee injury - then the rule makes sense. But there is nothing age-related or chronic about getting a puck to the face or a stick to the eye.
That's a great point, Dave. There are injuries and then there's the out-of-nowhere ones.
