It's really really clear the Bourque had an extremely better career post age 31 than Fetisov.

Heck there are probably over 100 players on D that did. Unless Fetisov is at an Bobby Orr level of dominance, which he wasn't, the back end of both guys careers has to matter as a separation between the 2 players.
