It's not about the age on July 1st, that is not the date of demarcation.

Bill Daly, the deputy commissioner of the league, was contacted by Elliotte Friedman, a reporter for Hockey Night in Canada and FAN 590 in Toronto. Daly told Friedman that the deal is in fact an over-35 contract because of the date it goes into effect. It does not matter that the deal was signed before Pronger is 35 years old (he's 34 until October 10 of this year), because it does not go into place until the 2010-11 season.

The league's collective bargaining agreement uses June 30 as the cut off date, and Pronger will be 35 on June 30, 2010.
