So today I was very surprised to see Matt Cullen was still playing (I was surprised last year), but if he plays at least 70 games, he becomes 18th in total games played in the NHL, between Brendan Shanahan and Steve Yzerman. He is currently 25th, and seeing the list I can't help but wonder what's his secret? He never cracked 50 points in one season. In his career was not he a 2nd/3rd liner overall? Yet he is amongst the elite in the league in games played, and players in that top 25 are all hall of famers. At 42, what is his secret to still be a relevant player in a league filled with speedy youngster?
