Part topically humorous and part serious, this list breaks down five potential candidates for a veteran blowout this season. These players, All-Stars and future hall of famers were once considered among the best in their respective positions.
With the natural progression of age however, they have lost a step in the past couple of seasons. Some players, such as Mark Recchi of the Bruins, hang up their skates before posting a lackluster veteran season. Others, such as the five on this list, press their luck for one more season and another shot at Lord Stanley's Cup.
Keep in mind that I have no disrespect towards any of these players. I am merely suggesting that some of them have their best days behind them.
