With the lockout over and the season set to begin shortly, teams will begin to frantically sign free agents, hoping to fill in any gaps before the season starts.
It would be easy for teams to automatically choose a young player, hoping to build their team around these players for years to come. There are, however, several veterans on the market who have quite a bit left in their tank. With these players you get their veteran leadership along with abilities that, while not as strong as they once were, are still able to keep these players in the game against much younger opponents.
These are nine of the best free agents your team could get in spite of their age. If you doubt their talent is still there, by the end of the season you will see them completely differently.
