He was still an impact, solid player capable of logging big minutes at the age of 45.
MacInnis and Leetch also fit into this category -
a lot of defensemen
Dmen tend to age better on the whole than forwards do.
It's pretty obvious as to why IMO as on the back end guys can get by on their smarts and for forwards physical tools are probably more important.
Doug Harvey Aged quite well and was pretty darn good even if a watered down league in his early 40's
