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.
I thought Brian Leetch aged quite poorly - he lost a lot of his speed and his defensive ability took a major hit around 1997. MacInnis is a good one. There's an argument that he was better than ever as a all-round player after the age of 35.
