Kaberle is 32, and Iginla is 33 and many people feel that they are getting old.

23 is not a "kid", and to be honest I doubt he's going to get any better because he's at the prime age of most "snipers" in the NHL

For most hockey players the prime age is 28, but it's not like they have a significant jump from 23 to 28

Kessel is no longer concidered a 'kid', Toews is 22 and he's not treated like a 'kid' or how about Tavers, he is only 20, but he's matured pretty quickly.

I know people like to believe that there's all this "potential" but guys like Kessel (23), Bozak (24), Gunnarson (24) don't expect them to get much better.
