There's no reason to think Keith will not still be an elite athlete at 33. 33 is not when careers end in this day and age of nutrition and workout regimes. Erik Cole is not an elite talent and just put up 35 goals at age 33. Hossa, Whitney, Iginla, Doan....lots of guys in their mid-30's that are still really good players.
