Jester, without getting into a debate about the little stuff (such as Kobe Bryant) that I probably shouldn't have brought into this, here's an interesting stat.
At the end of the last season, here's an age breakdown.
1 49 year-old (Chelios)
2 43 year-olds (Lemieux, Roberts)
1 41 year-old (Recchi)
2 40 year-olds (Shanny and Numinen, I'm not counting Richardson who played 2 games).
So the NHL has elected to have 40 have this be arbitrary deadline based on....absolutely nothing. It's not like there's loads of 40 year-olds, but no 42 year-olds and that deadline, should they choose to act on it, is completely unfair on the Flyers and the Hawks.
