But great observation about the center problem. Thoresen is good as center as well, so its 5 best centers getting old!).
Well Hansen, Skrøder, Vikingstad, Trygg, Ask and Bastiansen are just gettin better and better I think Mathis Olimb and Ken Andre Olimb will step up and do a great job on the first line. They got good hands just like shampo. U can teach a player alot (blocking shots, positioning, skating) but not good hands, vision etc.

And yeah ofc some might retire cause of injuries, but remember one thing. Most of our players are small. Thats a great thing rly. Its easier to stay in shape in ur mid 30s if ur small. They also play in a less physical league and therefore their careers might last longer.
