I think it's slightly misinformed. There are data out there that indicate that a goalscorer's peak tends (note: tends) to be around 24 on average, but that doesn't indicate the end of their prime, just generally their highest scoring season. Most forwards don't fall out of their "prime" until after 29-30. There are also exceptions (e.g. Iginla, Hull, etc.) who could be argued to have peaked in their late 20s as opposed to mid 20s.
