Pavel is 34. But I can see him as an "ageless" player. That "Larionov" that is there at 40 year old. Centers the 4th line and takes the key faceoffs and runs the 1st power-play. Is the huge important veteran example for younger players. Ray Whitneys, Teemu Selannes can do, Pavel can do it. Without any doubt. That superb game sense just makes it possible.
I see him also gone after 2014. The divorce and daughter situation changed everything. If his family would still be at Detroit, that would be a no-brainer to stay here.
But, if he stays, let's take that just as a happy surprice. Maybe he needs a new woman. All the Michigan American women, I challenge you to keep Pavel here!
(Same like case Nabokov was. His american wife didn't want to live at Russia, so they came back)
