I'm not sure what makes you think a forward's prime lasts until they are 34.

Of course, this is not set in stone, but I think that saying his prime will last for another half decade is more than a little optimistic. Especially considering Spezza had a 3 year stretch where he scored at 1.32, 1.30 and 1.21 points per game, following that with 3 seasons of less than a point per game before his recent resurgence scoring at 1.05 points per game.
