Anyone bringing up the karlsson injury as something meaningful in this discussion is lost. They don't even deserve a reply, aside from full body armour nothing could prevent that sort of play. Happens a 100 times a week, sometimes it results in an injury sometimes it doesn't. Our players getting beat down is not an accident, it's done by design and with no fear of retribution.
And people wonder why Plekanec always starts the season hot and ends up going cold as it advances. In a few years, I bet people will also wonder why Gallagher is less visible as the season advances
The only one who doesn't look like he's affected by this is Subban. It's quite surprising to be honest, but really understandable, since the kid was always known for having a real, real strong character. But then again, as he gets hit and punched after plays, he'll also lose some of his "umph".
