I don't think we've seen the best of Kessel yet
players primes start at there 6th NHL season you think a player who joins the NHL at 18 compared to a player who joins at 21 hit there primes at the same age? the reason 27 is considered the average age of players primes is because most players join the NHL at age 20-21 which 6 years becomes 26-27 as the beginning of there primes. a player joining at 18 doesn't need 3 extra years to develop inside the NHL to hit there prime as someone whose 21 joining the NHL. go look at the majority of players by the end of there 6th season I would say 90% play atleast one season at there prime level. they may not have there career year in the first 6 but what they do on a regular basis is deffinitly hit.
