How many of these studies look into games played? The assumption (maybe not true) is that the older you are, the more susceptible to injury you are. I'm guessing the tendency is that production goes down often as a result of injury from playing the game. So, is the player out of his scoring prime? Or is he just not on the ice as much? If he's more injured, would you consider him in his prime anymore? GM's often have to pay for potential to UFA's regardless of how fragile a player can be, or, is.

[Hope this made sense]
