Greene's only 27, so I could see him sticking around for a while, but Scuderi is 32 now and I worry about how close he is to losing a step. His game requires his positioning to be perfect at all times and I think two or three years down the line he'll start to have problems with opponent's speed. I don't see a prospect in the system who's as capable as he is, but I don't know if he'll be able to keep playing top four minutes once he hits 35.
