Kipper did at 34, Nabokov did at 34... a lot of good NHL goaltenders had their last very good season at age 34.
Could Thomas only handle light workloads, or was he only given light workloads because they had Rask? He played 57 regular season and 25 post season games at age 36. He played 59 and 7 at age 37. Both years, Rask played a significant number of regular season games, but none in the playoffs. Thomas' age 36 season was phenomenal.
In Lundqvist's best year (and the Rangers best year since 97), he only played 62 regular season games, and then another 20 in the playoffs.
