Do you know how many players actually make it to 40 before they retire? Maybe 40 since the NHL came to be. It's quite the feat.

A GM would be crazy to pay out the nose for a 34 year old on the assumption he'll not only play till age 40, but also remain as effective as he is today.

I mean, I'd still pay out the nose to get him on the B's as Krejci, Colborne, and Boston's 1st next year is a hefty price. I just wouldn't want to see the Bruins massively overpay for him... and yes, I already know a Calgary fan would love to see that, kinda goes without saying.
