As the new season of the NHL has started up there has been a lot of talk lately about all the new talent that has entered the league. As much as I love watching these youngsters go out there and give it everything they got in every shift, there is also something about watching the old guys play. They may not have the speed anymore but due to their experience and raw talent they are still some of the best players in the league, and many of them will most likely end up in the NHL Hall of Fame one day. Here is a list of my favorite “old timers” currently still active in the NHL.
When I made up the list there were two things I looked at: They had to be 35 years or older, and they had to be contracted by a team in the NHL.
Mike Modano –
Martin St Louis
Obviously there are more players playing in the NHL that are 35 years or older, but these players are my favorites and I feel like (almost) all of them still have important roles to play on their teams.
