Lots of inane chatter here right now but Staples sat down with Katz for his series and this interview shouldn't be lost.

Thanks David.

Right on.

If my wife is watching, I'll be sticking to this thread and the official trade threads, and no, I'm sure why someone keeps downloading pictures of Kelly Carlson onto the computer.

Good night to all, and keep your stick on the ice!

I usually love Staples, but that rat list of defensemen in their prime at 31 is complete BS of picking and choosing.

Norm MacIver is really an example of a d-man at 31?

Over 200 defenseman, if not 400 have been 31 years old in the NHL since 1990. Yet, he has a list of maybe 21 that have been that age and played in the league, and in his opinion were failures.

5 foot 10 doesn't matter anymore. But for every Norm MacIver, he has a Phil Housley. Lubomir Visnovsky is an NHL allstar player, from his list he has - Mark Howe, Phil Housley, Randy Carlyle, Steve Duchesne... not exactly bad company.

About a 75% be in the NHL at "34" rather than "31" like Visnovsky is, and played in an allstar game to make the Hall of Fame. I'll take those odds. Thanks for the stats David Staples.

I really like the part about Katz. Like how he references himself of being a complete anti-pocklington. You know, not afraid to spend money.
