Oh for sure I understand your concern. I just get a bit agitated when people constantly bring up age as a main reason why a guy shouldn't be signed. There are people I've spoken with who would rather give a D spot to a guy like Oliver Lauridsen, who if he meets his projection ceiling , is still not as good as a guy like a 38 year old Dan Boyle.

If the money and years are right, I say who cares about age?
