Wrong side of 30? Someone like Iginla or Sullivan is on the wrong side of 30. Having just turned 32 years old is not being on the wrong side of 30. That's called early 30s. Some players put up their best seasons in their early to mid 30s. The problem with Marian is groin/shoulder problems which made him lose some of his speed and shot. He is still deadly with the puck.
