Craig Anderson will turn 35 next month and he understands that he may not have many years left in him.
"Eventually, you run out of next years," he said, "You can sit here and say 'there's always next year' and every player does it when they're a young guy. But when you get to my age, you just can't say that any more because there's no wick at the end of the candle there." He recommended that players train their minds over the summer as well as their bodies. Anderson feels that being mentally tough is a learned skill and it could help the Senators moving forward.
