He's in his prime... I dont consider him to be a vet. When someone talks about someone being a veteran its because they are older then most... above the avg age.
All being a veteran means is being long experienced in a certain field.
I think a 28 year old player in the NHL who has 9 years under his belt qualifies as being "long experienced". Whether he's older than most or not really isn't a factor. It's about the years of experience.
- Rod Brind'Amour
- MA Fleury
- Dmitri Afanasenkov
- Brett Hull
- Rick Nash
- Dustin Brown, Mikko Koivu, Dion Phaneuf....idk there are a lot of great prospects in the west, too hard to decide.
P.S. I would have said Souray for favorite young players, but I am not allowed to. And also people, I am not a bandwagon jumper, I always thought Souray was Montreal's best defenseman, and now that he is scoring goals like there is no tommorow, he is my favorite young player. Tough, hard shot.
