Go through the NHL and show me which players are better at 30 than they were at 25 and I'll come back with a list of thousands of players to counter.
By the way, don't be silly, Giroux is not a top 10 player in the NHL. Let's see him crack the PPG mark before we call him Forsberg.
I think you are misunderstanding, I am saying that a players prime is from 24-30. Conventional wisdom has it at 27-32, I agree this is wrong. I believe the likelihood of a players best years being between 24-27 is likely, but 28-30 should also be prime years. Again, I am only looking at current day NHL, post lockout.
