How many 40+ guys are in the NHL this year, Lidstrom and Selanne?

Statistically speaking Thomas has 2 years left in him while Kane has 10-15 in all probability.
What if he gives you the best chance to actually win Cups in those two years?

This is what people seem to be missing.

That, or they're eating peyote flavored communion wafers.

Politcal genius, no. Conn Smythe winner, yeah. You don't deal those away, sorry.
