That would be the 11 playoff games in 2010-2011 and then the 19 games to start off 2011-2012. After that, he suffered the upper body injury that caused him to miss several weeks (muscle tear in midsection), then he just got back from that when he sustained his concussion. And not long after returning from that injury, he broke his foot. And on top of all of this, he was already playing all of 2011-2012 w/ his hip issue. At no point after the first 19 games was he truly healthy. Hell, based on the severity of his hip issue, I guess you could make the case that he was never truly healthy last season.

Regardless, we'll see what he does this year, provided he stays healthy. He should've gotten this last year w/ the Flyers, since his make or break 3rd year was marred by injuries, but now we'll get to watch and see what he can do in Toronto.
