Gaborik is NOT injury prone!

GAH! Has anyone read the NHL threads. They all say Gaborik is injury prone and hasn't had a healthy season! He has a few healthy seasons with a couple games missed here and there, the most being 11 in his rookie season and I think he was scratched a few games IIRC. HE IS NOT INJURY PRONE DAMN IT!

I will talk you through this. I am a trained health care professional. In all seriousness. It does suck when they label Gaborik that way. Groins, and shoulders can kill players for more then one season in some sports. Gaborik had the same injury, just one. Effect him for a few seasons.

Knees too In football...Can't it be said thought that injuries can take a couple seasons to actually heal right?

They can take forever to heal if it gets re-injured. It happened to me when I dislocated my shoulder in hockey, and re-injured it again diving for a loose ball in volleyball. Now my shoulder feels like it will never heal properly.

I doubt Gaborik is 100% healed from his injuries, but if he stays healthy for his playoff run, then he has all summer to get better.

Repeat injuries suck

If Gaborik stays healthy for a season they'll all change their tune. There's not much of a memory here.

I agree that he's not injury prone. He's only had one injury and that'd be he shreds his groin he's so ****ing quick. It's taking quite a while to resolve the problem, wouldn't you agree? I think that when people are referring to him as injury prone, they are saying he's having trouble resolving the "groinal" issue. Then again, some people are just ignorant f***wads.

Hes not as bad as Bertuzzi is, but he definately isn't like Thorton or Jagr who barely miss any games year in and year out.

well for accuracy sake... this yr was the first significant injury Bert's sustained in his career. he's only missed significant blocks of games due to suspensions.... not injury.

The Gold Standard example of a player that's injury prone would be Eric Lindros...
Jovanoski would be another. Pre-lockout Jagr actually routinely missed a handful of games due to his groin as well... his time-off and the new rules gave him a serious health and scoring boost.

Touche

I just wish Gabby would make a fully season again...guy should be leading the league in goals this year if he was healthy as much as Vinny, Danny, and Selanne were.

Notice how Gaborik always injures his groin in the first half of the season, and then he is fine? I think the problem lies in his summer conditioning more than anything else. He is like that guy who doesn't go to the dentist until his teeth start falling out. It looks like he is commited to taking better care of his body, staying in the US this upcoming summer is a step in the right direction. If everything goes as planned, we should see a full year of Gaborik next season.

Well you must give them some credit. Its not like he is talking out of his ass.
Gaborik has played 178 of possible 246 during the last 3 seasons.
That is 68 games missed. Almost a full season during 3 seasons of hockey.
So while I hope Gaborik can overcome this downward spiral of injuries,
you should also consider the possibility that he might not.
And might be a guy missing +20 games a season regularily for the rest of his career.

I agree. Sure, he's "only" suffered groin injuries three of the six years he's been in the league, but in two of those seasons, he was injured twice - meaning that he's been injured five times in six seasons. It walks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck - the guy's got a history of serious groin injuries, and you can't deny it.

It's the same thing that happened with Briere last year - people only remember that one odd, recent injury, not the years of 65-81 games.

Gabby is tough as nails, but his groin is made of glass.
