I understand that

However Michalek has bad knee history so I am worried regardless

People who make the NHL don't strike me as guys that enjoy "not working" as much as us regular folks: they want to be playing as much as possible. Especially in the NHL we know all about players playing through stuff they shouldn't have and ended up making things a lot worse (Marc Savard being one of the most recent examples I can think of).

I'm just concerned but I understand why Michalek wants to play, I love the guy's attitude (less than enamoured with other aspects of his game but gotta give the guy credit)
