Perhaps you might, but IMO that's a faulty view of the contrast between Ohlund and Salo as I described it.
Salo could very well be the most injury prone player in the entire League. Salo could re-play his entire career again, and he'd likely suffer an equal (or higher!) number of injuries - and
still manage to get bitten by the only snake in all of Finland.
Ohlund, OTOH, was not an injury prone player. Sure he suffered a few bangs and bruises from his style of play, but one of his hallmarks was is horse-like durability. The significant point I brought up was the eye injury
. A single event that re-defined his career and was - like Manny's - a freakish accident. If he played out his whole career again, the chance of that happening again would be basically zero.
So, no, I don't really believe you can reverse them.
