Can you point to said research where you demonstrated 37 is the magic number of players becoming a team cancer?

I think it's foolish to say anyone's skill improves with age (on the backside of their career), but the real question is: at age 37, are they going to be more effective than some "lesser" player on your roster? My money is on Yes.

I can't think of a Thornton-type player who played 'til 40+, but I think with Marleau's health history, he could take on a Selanne-type role until retirement.
