Deducing the argument to age is too simplistic and not at all useful. It's not about how much you'll pay Luongo at 42 compared to Brodeur at 42. The TERM is the selling point, not the price. Generally, Leafs fans agree that the team needs a solid veteran - one who can stick around long enough to give the young goalies in our system a chance to develop without pushing them out of the way entirely.
