"like Joel before he got too old/slow."

The trick is recognizing when they are about to get too old and slow and releasing them before that. Obviously that's a tricky thing to do, but I think with older players, I'd prefer to take a gamble releasing them and being wrong, than signing them and being stuck with an expensive team mascot. Especially with our budget.

He's 35, and the wheels are going to come off imminently. There were a few games this season where he looked off the pace (admittedly, it was only one very brief patch). Overall he was a very good and a very impactful player, but I suspect we should be pleased to have had one good season out of him and call it a day.
