43 and yeah it is. Nobody in their right mind agrees to a legally binding contract in writing with a verbal agreement nobody can prove that they won't actually need all of it to be honoured. If for example Tim Thomas continued playing this year and had a contact until he's 45 with the verbal agreement he'll retire before that, nobody is going to give up the same for him if it was a 1 year deal instead... even if he said he was going to retire next year anyways.
