    27 in Russia = 45 in America. Explains a lot about his skillz dropoff.

    London Fletcher is throwing that average age off. I’ll still take him for another year rather than having a younger roster.

    GreenHeart, Ovi did lead the NHL in goals last season.

    Jules, Fletch (and Moss and Rocca) bump the Skins’ average age up, but I think every team probably has some olds on their roster.

    I agree with Jules, I think it’s more of just our veterans are pretty damn old. Fletcher is 38, Rocca is 39! Although we have a lot of players in the 28-35 range. But look at our cornerstones. Griffin-23, Morris-24(25 soon),Silverback-25,Garcon-27,Orakpo-27,Kerrigan-25,Davis 27. I think we’re fine and the average age will drop next year when we Fletch and Tana retire, D-Hall and Josh Wilson are gone. I just think the older players will only be here this year and maybe next.

    The only thing accurate in the Sun article is what Buck said.

    When you’re a top 3 offense in the league, you’re scoring enough runs to win games. Now find some fucking arms.
