Generally I would agree that reoccuring injuries are more worrisome.
HOWEVER...not in the case of Connor Murphy. He had a back problem that kept him from playing any hockey of any kind from age seven to age seventeen (or something like that
). Then he blows out a knee and misses nearly another year. Bot before coming back and suffering a should/neck/concussion (did we ever find out?), and now his arm is in a cast.
I'm sorry, this guy needs to be a pillow salesman, not a hockey player.
EDIT: With less hyperbole, he has played 125 games TOTAL the last four years combined. This includes midget hockey in Ohio, international tournaments, and these most recent OHL playoffs.
That's barely thirty games a year. Between the ages of fifteen and nineteen. These are the most important development years of his life and he spends more time sitting out than playing. Now he's hurt AGAIN and missing even more development time. He should be in this rookie camp, gaining valuable experience. Instead he's standing around in a cast. All he ever does is stand around in a cast.
