So the losing streaks pre Cap World have an * to help explain the losing in some markets. Its the reason we had the last lockout to bring parity & fairness of leveling the playing field financially.

Only 1 NHL team has failed to make the NHL playoffs in a Cap World, and unfortunately we all know who that is. A shorten season does increase the odds however that this streak will be ended.

The LA Kings were the 4th youngest team on average age and won the Stanley Cup, with only a mere .3 separation from 26.5 to 26.2 (Leafs) team last season. Age is only a number its the talent level of the players in question that make the difference.

Colorado Avalanche 25.5
Toronto Maple Leafs 26.2
Buffalo Sabres 26.4
Los Angeles Kings 26.5
Nashville Predators 26.6
Obviously Mess. Anyone know the average age of the Pat Quinn teams that racked up 100 point seasons and Final 4 finshes? Was a veteran squad who would have kicked the currents rosters' a$$ all the way up Bay Street.
