I actually think he will age far quickly than Shanny who doesnt rely on speed at at all.
While I'm inclined to agree with you about Näslund not being as evergreen as Shanny, his best attribute, speed, is not his only one. He's got a fine release and a lot of character and brains on the ice. I don't think he'll age badly, even if he won't be in the league anymore when he's 40.

I don't think it's a good sign that he's still someone who can rightly considers 20 goals and 60 points disappointing
