Everybody's different though. For example, a player who prior to the NHL played in Europe or the NCAA (with the shorter seasons) tend to have less physical wear and tear than somebody who played 4 long years in the CHL, and therefore may have a later peak.
Is there actually any info to back this up or is it a recent trend, ie Cap reflective in part.
I just had a quick look at some of the top scorers of all time and there doesn't seem to be a lot of evidence to support this.
