Clarke: Hits 104 points in his fourth year and is 24. He follows that up with 87,116, 119, 90, 89. So from 24-29 he is in his prime.

Giroux is now entering his prime. Will he crack 100? Only the top 2-3 players in the league do that these days, but will he be a top 10 scorer in the NHL for the next 5-7 years. I think so. Look at a good setup guy with a lot of skill - Henrik Sedin. He only cracked 70 points at 26. Then he went 81, 76, 82, 112, 100 this year?

So don't act like age 26 is the tipping point for players - cause your ******* wrong. There are plenty of guys in their 30's at or near the top of the NHL in scoring (Iginla, St. Louis, Sedin, Sedin, Selanne, Brad Richards, etc).
No, I'm not. Just because you failed 4th grade level math, doesn't make me wrong.
