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.
Because the players are able to be UFA at a much younger age than in the past, this causes teams to build thier teams with young guys and a few older vets for leadership.
In the next 2-3 years The Habs will be bringing in 4-5 more guys on thier ELC. These guys will need older guys to lead. IMO Doan would fill the leadership role perfectly.
