Koivu and Kovalev could still be a solid 3rd line pairing in 3-4 years if they slow down. The bring a lot of offence to the table that doesn't rely just on leg speed like moves, face offs, solid bodies, cunning vision of the play, passing.

Look at Modano on Dallas, 37 years old, plays 3rd line for them during season contributing nicely, and has stepped up bigtime in playoffs (9pts in 11 games, lots of clutch).
