So, we don't really know how it affected him. Only he knows, and Buffalo fans are soon to find out.
I completely agree as I know people who have been very ill with mono. I was only pointing out that he clearly had a case closer to mine or he simply wouldn't have been on the ice and he would have sought medical attention long before the end of the season.

Like I said, mono wouldn't explain his aversion to any kind of contact or traffic. I love the fact that he is in Buffalo. Hopefully we meet them in the playoffs when they are relying on him to carry them.
