With regard to defensemen and goalies, they clearly get better as they age. The lack of star D/G between the ages of 18 and 25 in the league, especially compared to the bevy of star forwards, is quite clear. Yet since we're talking about forwards (as it has been pretty conclusively proven they are what Colorado is best at drafting and development), there is a far more limited time frame for production. If the Avs cannot get their collective **** together by the time that Duchene and Landeskog turn 25, they may need to bring in younger forwards to be their impact offensive scorers.
