When should Coffey have retired?

Coffey hit more than 30 points in just twice of his last 5 seasons, after scoring 50+ points in each of his 15 previous seasons.

1995-1996: 76 GP, 14 goals, 74 points (Detroit Red Wings)
1996-1997: 37 GP, 9 goals, 34 points (Hartford-Philadelphia)
1997-1998: 57 GP, 2 goals, 29 points (Philadelphia Flyers)
1998-1999: 44 GP, 2 goals, 10 points (Chicago-Carolina)
1999-2000: 69 GP, 11 goals, 40 points (Carolina Hurricanes)
2000-2001: 18 GP, 4 assists, 4 points (Boston Bruins)

When would have been the ideal time to retire? I would say 1997. The year after he hit 74 points with the Wings, and got 34 points with Hartford + Philly.
