Stamkos is one of the best players in the league and he's only 23. If you polled the gms every one of them is going to take a 23 year old Stamkos over a 31 year old Lundqvist.
You just said it, indivisuals don't win Cups. A team with Hank overachieves, yet a team with a player like Stamkos can end up worst in the league.

But yes, Stamkos is younger.

Thankfully NONE of this actually matters.
