Among older players:

--Tim Horton won three postseason all-star slots (including two 1st-teams) between the ages of 37 and 39. That's remarkable in any era, but particularly in an era when few players lasted that long, period.

--Same goes for John Bucyk. His point totals in the '70s owed a lot to the era and the stacked Bruins team he played on, but he was still a top-20 scorer at the age of 39 and 40. Pretty sure only Howe had pulled that off previously.

Also impressive: Bucyk was nearly a point-per-game player at the age of 41. Up until that point, only 10 players had ever played in the NHL at the age of 41.
