The guy plays 65+ games a year. Plus playoffs. Plus Olympics and probably a future World Cup or two. He's putting a lot of miles on those knees. How many elite years does he have left in the tank?

Based on this analysis, it's reasonable to think that Lundqvist can maintain his current level until he is 37. He'll be 32 when his next contract starts. If he wants 7 years, I'm fine with that. He'll be 37 to start the 6th year of that contract.
