Most of the rest of his issues stemmed from an injury from juniors that just progressively got worst. IMO it's not fair YET to say that he is injury prone. Yes he got concussed but that is hardly uncommon in the NHL.
I don't have a problem with what you said, but considering how much flak Crosby gets for what was a fluke injury that could have been solved a lot quicker if the doctors identified the reason for his elongated concussion, I think it will ultimately be considered a factor by the masses until proven otherwise. It doesn't take much for hfboards to jump on something like this, and considering Hall did not finish either of his first two seasons, it's simply status quo here as far as I'm concerned.
