He looked pretty damn good last season.
He looks like he has lots left in the tank. Hopefully he has enough to get him through a few more seasons. Selanne, Recchi, Whitney, etc... have all shown in recent years that you can play into your 40's if you take card of yourself an have a little luck on your side.

The only thing is, when your that age, you can lose it fast.
I disagree. He's worth bringing back and playing but he seems to have lost some of the abilities he once had.
