There is no formula! Each of us takes into consideration his injury history, but to what degree and in what respects, is not set in stone.

I personally do not knock Orr in the playoffs (unlike some other all-time greats with injury issues) but do expect that the team that drafts him have a competent #7 to take a regular shift, competent #4 to handle top-3 duty in the LONG REGULAR season.

I have always maintained that a team can handle any single player with a history of injury issues, but two or three starts to raise eyebrows and question marks.
