One thing about the charts is Mirtle kept things very simple and didn't account for survivorship bias. IE, the power forwards who keep producing into their 30s (ie, Shane Doan) produced at a much HIGHER rate in their 20s than the 45-50 points Clarkson's been providing. Overall the outlook for that contract is pretty grim.
