Not sure if Bennett or Sutter are core guys, but I am pretty sure Depres is (21).
I went 25 and under when I said Hawks. Toews, Kane, Leddy, Saad, Shaw, will all play NEXT season at 25 or under.
This thread really does need a definition of terms. Or one term in any event. Young.
The Pens' core is just entering their prime years, which is hard to believe given how long they have dominated the news and even on the ice. Mid-20's. Which is young in hockey years. Assuming that they, meaning Crosby, Malkin, Letang, Fleury and Neal, stay together the entire time that core will have another at least 7 or 8 years of potentially dominant play.
So yeah define terms. In my book if the core is likely to remain together and dominate like that one will for the next decade, that qualifies, but reasonable minds can and will differ.
