Well he missed almost the whole 08-09 season with a knee injury but yeah the injury prone label does seem to come from earlier on his career as opposed to more recent years.

Souray on the other hand is probably a sure bet to miss at least 20 games. I hope we insured his contract.

+/- is irrelevant, I wouldn't evaluate anybody on that stat without further context. They were sheltering him a bit but I think it was more due to having Clark/Smaby/Guenin who are known for being shutdown guys and who can take the tougher defensive minutes. Vatanen was definitely better in the season opener than he was in the second game though.
