At 35, Lidstrom was playing 28 minutes a game which is more than Keith plays now at age 28. I'm not saying Keith = Lidstrom, but you can still be a big minute defenseman in your mid-30's if you stay in shape. Plus it assumes that Keith won't change his game as he gets older like most players do. Hell Dan Boyle just put up 3 50 point seasons in a row at age 33-34-35 playing over 25 mins a night. Brian Campbell just had one of the best seasons of his career at age 32, Keith hasn't even turned 29 yet!
