      The Winnipeg Jets were my team on NHL94. Teemu… Tkachuk… Tomas Steen… Tie Domi… Teppo Numminen…. Bob Essenza in goal… those were the days.

        Steen is still playing. Oh, wait, that’s his son. :-)

    But even if Brodeur is in net, that might not be a record for collective age. Without checking first, I’ll guess Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull and Dave Keon beat them in 1980.
