Experience vs. youth

Experience is usually under-rated in business and sports. Experience means old. Youth means vitality and energy and lack of encumbrances, thus more hours for spending on whatever the task is at hand. But in the Stanley Cup finals between Detroit and Pittsburgh, the youthful Penguins indeed look immature. Maybe there’s something to those studies suggesting that experience has real value. Keep that in mind when dumping older workers who make more money than a new hire would — the new hire may not be able to do the job as well.
