he's 36 years old , he doesnt belong in the top 6 and neither does abdelkader or cleary but thats babcocks fault for putting them up there instead of giving the kids a fair shot for more than just 1 game
surely a line of andersson datsyuk tatar for 5-6 games would of made more sense then abdelkader/cleary or samuelsson
out of any argument you could have made, you choose to say he shouldn't be in the top 6 because he is 36?
Daniel Alfredsson since turning 36 has 90 goals and 248 points in 303 games
Jerome Iginla will be 36 in July, currently has 7 goals and 19 points in 24 games
Jagr had 25 goals and 71 points when he was 36
I am not saying sammy will do any of that, my point is just cause someone is 36 doesn't mean they should be put on the 4th line... If you said he is too slow, his shot isn't accurate, he doesn't skate well, those would be valid debates. Stating his age and saying he can't play in the top 6 because of it is ignorant
