And as far as knee surgeries go? this isn't 1975, knee surgeries happen all the time. Remember why Galchenyuk fell to number 3, he also had knee surgery and has come back stronger. The only reason Emilin is still out is because he couldn't have surgery until the swelling on his knee went down and for some reason that took almost 5 weeks before they could perform surgery. He is back skating but the Habs are winning games so no use rushing him back. Thats what you can do when you have depth.
