Is there some rule that says skilled players can't win puck battles? Or that a group of players with an
average age of 21
will never improve in that capacity?
This is the problem though! Do we have to wait until all these guys are 25 before we start winning games? Or should we move one(the youngest) and upgrade right now? It's not like we'd be adding a ton of age but Simmonds is 25 and going into his prime, Schenn is 22, Couturier is 20, Coburn is 28. We're adding two guys in their prime and the other guys will be hitting it sooner then Yakupov. The Nordiques traded 3 of their 1st overalls and won a cup so I don't think it's a bad strategy to follow.
