Elias had 96 points in 82 games in 00-01, at the age of 25.

Jokinen had 89 points in 82 games in 05-06, he was around 25-26.

Daniel Sedin - 84 points in 82 games in 06-07. 25 years old.

Henrik Sedin - 81 points in 82 games in 06-07. Same age.
Jokinen when he was 25 had the privilege of playing in Europe for the lockout. One year made so much difference in turning his career around. He was 26 when he finally hit 80 points.

Elias- My mistake.

Daniel Sedin- 26 years old.

Henrik Sedin- 26 years old.

If you played hockey, you would know that one season is a long time in developing a player. Just take a look at Hemsky himself, from last year to this year. Other than Elias, none of these players were at that peak at the ripe age of 25.
