The board doesn't automatically revolt at all 35+. It depends on the situation. Many of the situations aren't good. For instance, Hedberg for two years...I don't think that would be good. I'd consider him a 1 year guy.
How was signing a 7th dman for 2 yrs at $750K a bad sigining. Lilja wasn't great but filled the role like you would want your 7th to do without causing stink when he was a scratch. CHI had to pay $1M for OD last season. Who were you going to sign this season to be the #7 for $750K?

Even Hedberg at 2 yrs (depending on the money) wouldn't be bad. He is only going to play 20 games behind Bryz which is what he has done most of his career. It also gives Hoivonen (?) time to adjust to the NA rinks.
