Klein is actually in the prime of his career. Most NHL D's peak around 28 and carry that through age 33-34.

And, I can't agree with you about Lundqvist because:

A.) You don't have a crystal ball. You don't know if he's going to win a Cup here or not
B.) You say he's "the best goalie in the league" but what kind of Cup winning plan would trade the best goalie in the league? That's puzzling.
