Holy hell. I have my issues with Gillis but every now and then it's good to have a reminder of how incompetent Nonis was.
Looking at the charts, I would imagine the Leafs should be concerned about the performance drop off for power forwards after the age of 30.
Particularly since Clarkson turns 30 in March.
