How did he get those multiple 30 assist seasons then?

I do think Hunter's age is relevant too, as is Begeron's age. But, now you are basically arguing that potential matters on the trade market, at the same time as you are discounting the potential of youngsters like Malkin. And, yeah, Begeron is probably untouchable. The same can be said of Stajan, Hunter, Ryder, and most of the other young studs from last year's outstanding rookie class.

What exactly are you arguing,, Bergeron has been better than Malkin in World Juniors, already played well in the NHL, ( at 18 which is rare ). But I beleive you arguement is that Malkin's potential is higher ???? This is like arguing that it was wise for the Canucks to not sign Umberger to what Kesler got, when Kesler has less points than both Bergeron and Umberger. Bergeron > Malkin, until Malkin proves me wrong !
