Also, do they breakdown the players into groups ? Elite players likely have more extended primes. Also, guys may break into the league and put up 40 pts, but then find their niche is a 20pt 4th line/PK specialist.

Your 2014-15 Chicago Blackhawks, only Saad is younger
Pittsburgh won their first cup when Malkin was 22, Crosby 21, Jordan Staal 19, Letang 21 and Fleury 23. They have been a contender for 10 years after their core group first won by the age of 24.

Chicago won their first cup with when Pat Kane was 20, Duncan Keith was 26, Toews was 21, Sharp was 27, Seabrook, byfuglien were 24.

Anze Kopitar 26
Jeff Carter 28
Justin Williams 31
Mike Richards 28
Drew Doughty 23
Vyacheslav Voynov 23
Dwight King 24
Tyler Toffoli 21
Dustin Brown 28
Jarret Stoll 31

Your 2013-14 LA Kings with most of their scorers past their peak 'prime'
When the kings first won, Kopitar was 24, Brown was 26, Richards was 26, Doughty was 21, Voynov was 21, Jeff Carter was 26.

Compare to your current 17-18 Flames top 10

Johnny Gaudreau 24
Sean Monahan 22
Matthew Tkachuk 19
Micheal Ferland 25
Mikael Backlund 28
Dougie Hamilton 24
Mark Giordano 33
T.J. Brodie 27
Sam Bennett 21
Mark Jankowski 22

Yeah, the Flames have a lot more time on their hands...
If the Flames are going to establish themselves as having had a successful rebuild the time to do it is now. One more year and they will be significantly delayed as compared to your other examples.

Tinordi is a goof but I think he's absolutely correct in his outlook for where the team should be going. In a season where everything is going right for the team in terms of their star players (and that includes Smith), when the team has no first or second round pick, you absolutely HAVE to go for it starting now.

Jankowski had a very normal development path though right?

Typically players peak offensively within their first 3-5 seasons but they become better overall players as they get older.
