Leafs Start Parade... of Injuries

I read a report from the Toronto Maple Leafs training camp and I can't help but smile and think about what a great year this could be for us who don't like the Leafs:
Jason Allison, who hasn't played a meaningful NHL game in almost 32 months, didn't make it to the ice for his first scrimmage after the Leafs' new medical staff decided to keep him out because of a hip flexor injury he suffered while preparing for camp a week ago.
Meanwhile, Eric Lindros survived a big hit from prospect Staffan Kronwall, who afterwards admitted to holding back a bit knowing who was on the receiving end:
I knew it was (Lindros) so I tried to hold back a bit, but I could have hit him harder.
Keep your head up, Eric. Other players won't give you the same courtesy.
