Miller has a history of back injuries and plays like a tough SOB, so this one was foreseeable.
I don't see anything about AM's style or the lack of protection causing these injuries. They are random injuries that happen. Obviously, we need another D-man even when Miller and Lubo are back, but that's another issue.
agreed. for the most part, eveyrone who is out can be classified as somewhat "injury prone". With the exception of Frolov, Garon, and Roenick, which could be blamed by flukes of the game, the others were more or less expected. Because of this, you could somewhat blame DT for assembling a cast that averages 60 games a season, but not sure if I would go that far yet as they do play fairly effectively when they do play.
