3 out of 4 that can totally be wiped out the face of ice based on their non-physicality. "Aging" means, not what he gave us in the past, but what he'll be able to give us in the present and near future that still remains to be seen based on his not-so-distant past injuries. That the last time he played an almost full schedule, was in 2008-2009. A Diaz, that capable puck mover, that would be traded right now, and nobody would care or almost.

So yes, if everybody play up to their potential and to their best, are able to not be injured, and are intelligent and wise enough to avoid being hit and are able to deal with the physical game played against them, so yes, we've got a fantastic top 4. Reality seems to think that any wise teams won't let those guys deal with it. That if those teams are intelligent, the forecheck will be intense on them. We'll see how they handle it. No need to tell me that we have a Norris winner, he would not have won that trophy and still be elite. Yet, he doesn't play 60 minutes.
