    I think, Kane and Panarin will, and Towes (if he's still a star) won't.
    Crosby will
    Malkin will
    Ovi will

    Benn won't
    Karlsson won't

    Obligatory Toews mention as a won't be good. I feel bad for him now in these threads it has swung the other direction entirely.

    Ovechkin will retire in couple of years he is biologically almost 50 years old he already has gray beard and hair and he will drop from NHL very soon too slow for modern NHL game he will be one of slowest players of NHL in 2-3 years.

    Karlsson will still be very good at 35. His brain is unlike any other

    I slightly agree with Benn. I still think he will put up 20+ goals though as long as the team is decent. Maybe like 40-50 points though which is a big drop-off


    I don't think Byfuglien will be. Also don't think Burns will be

    Crosby will still be good, Toews will be a bottom 6 forward by then.

    From the Ducks Getzlaf seems to be aging very well where as Perry will struggle to get another contract after his current one expires at 35.

    They don't seem like the types who would still be good at an older age, but they're both 33 already so it would have to be a fairly quick downfall at this point

    Well to be fair, he kind of sucks now so it’s not really a bold prediction.

    Burns is like 33 right now, don't see how he won't be. Big guys and defenders age well and he just won the Norris a year ago.

    Stamkos has shown ability to modify his game well, he should still be good. Hedman could age like a Lidstrom lite, I’ll say he stays good. Kucherov will be good but will regress more than the other two. Point is a super smart player but is also a fast skater, hard to predict.

    I think Backstrom will be at least a top 6 centre until he's 38

    I’m just gonna say it, I wouldn’t be surprised if mcdavid is done in the NHL completely at 35, 36, 37, let alone a star.

    Just get bad vibes.
