Fair enough, but I'm not even getting into a tirade about how each individual player has such and such going for him. This is purely based on age and assuming that growth starts to plateau at 27. In retrospect I could have just as well listed average ages of each team and skipped all the names.

I think Kopitar is an elite young player and I don't think that the groups in St. Louis, Columbus, and Phoenix have more talent than we do. You disagree, ok, I respect your opinion. I think it's wrong, but I respect it.
