Kind of a cool site:

Really shows that if you haven't made it to the NHL by the age of 22/23, your odds of making it drop pretty dramatically.

I love Pevs btw... Had the chance to watch him pretty regularly when he played for the Milwaukee Admirals! Everybody knew he would be a star (as well as Weber, Rinne and Suter).
89 players in the last 10 years made their debut at 27 or older. Bourque was 22.
