Ah Ha! Please. If you talk to anybody who really understands NHL hockey, they will tell you that a hockey player approaches his prime at 25 usually till 31. Hockey is a brutal game. This isn't baseball dude. Players don't get better past that unless maybe they are a goalie. Saying a player is in his prime at 33 is mind boggling. Especially a player who plays a physical style. Those types are lucky if they are still in their prime at 31.


As far as those guys being inexperienced. Krog has 198 games of NHL experience. Hossa about 178. I hardly call that inexperience in the NHL. Plus, if you have listened to Jagr the past couple years, you must be on another planet not to realize this guy isn't the brightest guy in the world.
