I don't think the knee surgeries will keep him out... I just think they will set him back. The common perception is that it takes about a full year of playing after a major knee surgery before they get back to where they were... This will be the year for Cuma, not last season.

Which... I gotta say... While writing up the FRB prospect profile on Brodin, my brain was all awash with doom and gloom scenarios of something happening to his ankles/knees/hips. He is so bendy, that if any of that gets taken away, how much will impact his elite level skating?

And then I thought about concussions...

Blah. My brain goes all doom and gloom sometimes...
