It seems as though a persons fast-twitch muscles are in prime condition in their late teens to early twenties and then begin to fade or regress. A great example of this is the NBA's slam-dunk contest. Contestants are usually quite young when they participate because that's when they appear to be the most explosive jumpers.
I think goal-scorers in particular rely an awful lot on their fast-twitch muscle fibre and that's why they peak goal-wise early on. This doesn't mean they've peaked as players though. Players often add elements to their game over the years (play-making, defense, physicality, face-offs, leadership) that contribute to their overall game.
