Not many 38 year olds produce at a top 6 level. Only Selanne comes to mind.

The point is, every single athlete, ,especially hockey players, are on a severe decline once they're in their late 30s. There's no denying this. Just because Whitney has been effective recently, doesn't mean his age won't catch to him soon. In fact, he scored 20 less points this season as opposed to the previous season.

As much of an upgrade as he may be at this time, it's very questionable as to how long this will remain.
