Off-topic: Ignore advanced stats to your peril (Even these aren't, at all). Puck possession (Corsi and whatnot) was a major problem of ours last season and we didn't do much at all to improve it in the offseason. You know, uh, having the puck is a good thing.
Considering you don't even seem to know what your list is, I don't really know how to respond. It's just the 33 highest scorers between the ages of 28 and 33. A group ranging from Gretzky down to good but not great players like Verbeek, Guerin, and Andreychuk doesn't say very much. You can't tell me that Nash isn't capable of performing up to the level of a Pat Verbeek.
