Methusaleh, he ain't... yet

The old jokes start early. In the "Better Know a Newbie," the thing to know about Mathieu is that he is good on the power play and he's old. How old is he?
"Not like Methuselah old, but like 'his junior hockey team doesn't even exist anymore,' old."
True. They don't exist anymore. And as I realized in June, he was drafted before Sidney Crosby was even born. Yup. He's old.

The true gift of that piece? This wicked awesome compilation of Mathieu goals. As Mike Halford mentions, this is "quite possibly the world's only Mathieu Schneider mix tape." And I didn't even have anything to do with it.
