Plenty of players have had a much harder road to recovery after their injuries than Max. Markov, for instance. I think that Desharnais' candidacy would have had a lot of merit.
But the way Patches responded to it in his play this season (and going forward presumably) is what we're talking about - he could easily try and avoid contact but he doesn't. He wouldn't be the same player or nearly as effective if he did.

Anyway, I'm wasting way too much time on this.
