Stubborn maybe. But if I worked 16 years in an industry, exceeded all expectations to help my organization reach the mountain top the previous year, I hope my boss would give me a couple weeks to prove myself before being replaced by the young guy out of college.

Might not be the most pragmatic approach (that's what Stanbo is for), but that's why they love playing for Q. If that's how Q creates a culture of playing for each other, respecting each other, etc...I'm all for it. I have no insider information but from the outside looking in giving the vet 10 games isn't as crazy to me as everyone else on this board. It's still October.
It is not about finding legs for the old guys but them getting the proper rest to perform up to their potential at their age. Short offseasons with surgeries and slower healing with age means the playing time should be tempered with them.
