Just a jaw-dropping quote from Nonis in here: Im not worried about six or seven right now...Im worried about one. And Year 1, I know were going to have a very good player. I believe that hes got a lot of good years left in him.

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.
