The cap system really screwed it up, teams are using more and more young guys not because they are ready, but rather cuz they are on ELC.
ex Sam Gagner, the guy is 22 years old, has already played 5 season, all of which he has gotten atleast 40 points, but most ppl think he is done.
That's exactly my point. In my blog, I explain why more specificallly. Wasting cap space on veteran forwards is not the optimal usage of cap space. Since I have limited cap space, I will optimize its usage. Since D-men and goalies hit their prime later and need more experience to be effective, I'll try to restrict my usage of roster spots on expensive veterans to D-men and goalies. Forwards can be effective at a younger age.
And I never said 30 is old. I'm saying you can't have too many veteran forwards. In my blog, I explain why.
