Joe Pavelski is less than one month younger than Rick Nash. We're not talking about two guys who are on dramatically different parts of the development curve here, we're talking at being right around the same spot.



Sure, let me pop in the tape of Rick Nash playing for San Jose first.

Oh, I don't have any. How about you?
I was simply comparing ELC vs non-ELC, that's all. The age thing, while accurate, didn't have anything to do with that particular argument. Point just being that an ELC contract does not somehow reduce value, if anything it improves value in a trade situation.
