When are people going to realize that you do not win cups with key players, especially centers and no. 1 D, over 30?. Recchi and such are massive exceptions, and they were support players, not key players. FFS.
Not a C, but Hossa wasn't a key player last year? Chara? Lidstrom? Mike Richards might only be 28, but he's been on a decline for 3 years already due to his size and style of play.

If you are going to be condescending, you might not want to say something irrational. Players are clearly on the decline by 30, they don't magically lose their effectiveness overnight without suffering injuries though.

Last time we dealt someone like this was Rivet that got us Gorges & Pacioretty, worked out ok
When we ditched Saku, we replaced him with Scott Gomez. Saku meanwhile has gone on to continue to be productive a conference where it was harder to make the playoffs.

Why are you guys talking about tanking anyway? Because we have a few kinda-old players?
