Mark Recchi must've started a freaking revolution. This is the first time I've heard of it though.
Assume that established guys play until they're 38? Isn't that uncommon if they avoid serious injury... also quite likely to become more common in the future. However, if we're prognosticating lets just take the variable of injury out of the mix, because I'm assuming you're not going to blast a draft pick for having a serious injury... as that doesn't have much to do with their manifested talent at the NHL level.

That being said, who is suggesting that they will play at the same level... do you think Recchi is at the same level as he was in his prime? We're talking averages here, Chris. It isn't hard stuff.
