    Maybe, we’ll have to give it more time to know for sure.

    Hasn't he had multiple shoulder injuries/issues before this one?

    That can't be very good.

    So far yeah... Too early to proclaim him injury prone though. Matthew Stafford was injured in his first two seasons in the NFL missing more than half our games. Since then he's started every game, like 8 years in a row. He's a tank, but nobody would have thought so after his first two seasons.

    Question in the poll is in the present tense, in which case it's obviously yes since he's accumulated a lot of injuries over the past year. Question in OP though is in the future tense, and in that case I have no idea.

    No. You cant really have trouble staying healthy because unless your partying and falling down stairs, it can be difficult to have control over staying healthy.

    Failing a math test means I have trouble with math or studying. Being hit by lightning doesnt mean I have trouble getting hit by lightning.

    Might mean I have trouble staying in a safe area, but even then...not really. Maybe Matthew's has trouble bracing for the impact, or like Lindros tries to impose himself physically in areas/ways he maybe shouldnt. That's a limits and mentality issue, not a "staying healthy" issue. He also cant really not drive the net, so it's a fine line. Rather see him miss 10 games a year then turn into an ineffective perimeter player who's scared of taking damage....

    Imo ofc.

    Last season he injured his other shoulder that he also injured before the NHL, his back and had a concussion. He also tore his ACL or MCL when he was 16 I heard. It's a bit concerning but I think he'll be fine.
