They'll be 34 and 35 before the season starts.

They're both long in the tooth. They're old and their best years are behind them. They'll be looking for 3+ year contracts because they both know this is going to be their last chance to make any money. Nobody signs 38 year-old Gs in the NHL. Do you want an average chump like Theodore rolling around in the organization sucking up $4-5M a year for 3 or 4 years?

Neither one of these guys are Roy or Brodeur. Neither one are going to keep their value into their late 30's. It's going to be dead money that will have to be bought out.
