Prust's wound was more self inflicted than anything else. Nobody ran into him.
Ryder has a minor injury and I'm pretty sure its not due to a big guy running into him.
The injuries this year don't seem to add up to this theory.
What really happens is that the refs put the whistle in their pocket especially when you get into the playoffs. This favours the bigger teams because the skating teams have their best asset taken out of the equation.
To me, its not so much the wear and tear on the little guys as much as it is a change in the standard of officiating and style of play that favors the larger teams as we get deeper into the season/playoffss.
Your last paragraph has a ton of merit with me. I concur. Lets hope this changes and we don't get mugged in Boston.
Although Bruins fans say we do a lot of mugging too because our smaller guys can't out muscle their bigger guys. Oh well....
