Who do we have that is that complete?

I said it before and I'll say it again, you have an aging goalie on a very long contract and you have a bunch of young guys. There aren't many guys in their prime years with this team. We have Bryz as the #1 goalie from 31 to 40 years of age which is crazy, then there is Couts, BSchenn, Simmonds, Voracek, Giroux etc. who haven't entered their prime. Add in Briere and Kimmo in their mid 30s and the ages of the team as a whole are too widespread.
Aren't all living goalies "aging"?
