Ya after 7 years you would think so. But defense is a mature position, much like goaltending, with the majority of players seeing thier prime around the 27-28-29 yr old mark. So we will see if Dion can step his game up at all as he enters these years. But i do agree, improvements (if any) will be marginal.
