For a 1 year contract, there's zero implications for 35+. There's absolutely no difference between a 1 year deal for a 25 year old and a 36 year old.

Not a lot of 38 yr olds coming off knee surgery lighting it up in the NHL. Even more unlikely that he can do it for 82 games, not even talking play-offs yet.

The plan may be WW or Vinnie until Krieder/Thomas are ready because of what you just said. We may be forced to keep him. IF that's the plan I'm on board... but Sather has some $, and can get more by buying out W2... he should see what he can do for sure.
He's 36... kind of a big difference from 38
