The guy who was 7th in TOI and 8th in points in '11-'12 among NHL d-men is too old? I can see someone arguing he isn't a good fit because of duplicative skills with the young Swede or due to cap management, but saying he is too old just shows a general lack of understanding. Unless a team is in full rebuild mode (i.e. not in contention), you trade a 3rd liner or decent prospect for a #1-#2/elite PPQD every day of the week.
