And my fear isn't about major injuries. It is about the amount of little injuries and bruises that may force him to tone down his intensity. Then, if he learn to play the game, he'll still be efficient, like Gionta or Koivu. But if he's only relying on his agressiveness, he won't last long as a top-6 player.
Beside, 2 concussions is something to keep an eye on. Those injuries are piling up and usually get worse.
It may depend on his learning to pick his spots to some extent. And to be
more aware of when he is leaving himself more vulnerable. Hopefully he can
do that without losing what makes him effective.
