Gorges' style of play doesn't really indicate that he'll be less effective by then. He's a shot-blocker, a great stay-at-home guy, he doesn't really pinch in the offensive zone, he's a grinder...and his intangibles like his leadership abilities, his composure under pressure, and his always-safe decision-making skills will earn him most of that contract year in, year out.

He's not going to lose offensive production because he's not an offensive defenceman. He's not going to slow down due to age because he's not fast. He's not going to suddenly become terribly out of shape due to partying too much because he's much more responsible and mature than many players on the team. He's exactly the kind of guy who will be what he is now late into his career.
