The only injury that we have suffered so far this year that could maybe be put on lack of proper conditioning is Jones knee injury.

Downie get stuck in a rut and tearing his ACL is a freak injury.

Landeskog getting his head crushed was poor on ice awareness of the the on coming freight train.

Wilson stepping on Hejda's dropped stick and rolling his ankle/knee was a freak injury.

Johnson taking a slap shot off the foot, is just a part of hockey.

If anything I'd say we are having some bad luck, it seems like we've had that ever since Sakic put his hand in the snowblower. I'd say most of the injuries we've suffered are more a result of random happenings than poor conditioning. I would agree with you if people were going down with pulled groins, strained backs etc. but they're not.
