I agree, I think the Sedins will still be effective players at that age. Maybe not elite PPG players, but still good players.

They don't play an especially physical type of game, and their style of play is not dependent on physical ability (like speed) but rather on hockey IQ and technique, i.e. things that do no decline with age. They are also relativity healthy, I believe Henrik was the NHL Iron Man at some point? I think they can play in the NHL until they're 40.

I am more skeptical about Zetterberg, I think his body will be failing him by then. He has already had issues with his back and they will only worsen as he gets older.
