Verlander and Maddux dont seem to be under the same class of pitchers. I would consider Weaver the young version of Maddux.

Verlander's already more of a pitcher than a thrower. He hits his highest velocities in the later innings, from what I've seen he usually starts off games in 94-96 mph range.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that he doesn't strain himself trying blow batters away with his fastball, so it doesn't seem particularly likely that he'll lose velocity as he gets older.
