IMO you're oversimplifying things. The Red Wings were loaded with veteran forwards in their best years. The Devils just got to the finals with their veterans while the Blues and Oilers sputtered despite their wealth of talented youths. If something sin't broken, why try to fix it? You'd look awfuly silly if the Habs make the playoffs in 2013 withe the help of Prust and Armstrong.
The Wings best years were pre-cap era. I don't think you fully understood the point of my argument either. I'm not saying veterans are bad. I'm saying too many veteran forwards is a sub-optimal allocation of cap space.
