<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Lenny7</b></div><div>You're missing another option: Buyout ($5.5 mil), plus goes to Sweden to play with his brother ($3 mil)=$3 mil gained.
How is getting paid out $5.5 million embarrassing (To anyone other than the team that buys out the player that has been the face of the franchise for 15 year that all of the sudden thinks he should retire and leave money on the table), and what difference does it make what his career earnings have been? Is there a number that automatically means that money doesn't matter anymore?
"Hey Hank, you've been all class all the way...here, let us be classless and ask you to walk away because we need the cap space! Thanks, and here's a plastic trophy to commemorate your years of service here and Walmart!"</div></div>
Lol the writing's been on the wall the last 2 years, it's not like they haven't been working with him behind the seen to help him figure it out. He knows his cap simply doesn't fit in NYR or any team, especially now in a flat cap league. Classless, is flapping your lips thinking NYR are simply booting him out of town lol. If you want to get technical, he can retire, curtain call with bro and not cut ties with NYR and simply recoup ++ as ambassador/scout/... with NYR. Simple really...

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Lenny7</b></div><div>Correct. Either buy him out, and live with the fact that your team (apparently not this guys team, but you get what I'm saying), wasted 15 years of one of the top goalies of this generation,

His actual salary next year is (4.5m + 1m signing bonus) = 5.5m.
Embarrassingly ride the pine in NYR = 5.5m (he'd be bought out) therefore...
Embarrassing buyout 5.5m (5.5 & 1.5 cap, not sure about salary, 5.5m maybe less)
Unlikely ride the pine on contender = 5.5m
Retire with class, play with bro in Sweden = 3m (2.5m lost)
Career earnings 100m!!!
What a joke! Wasted 15 yrs of his life. I'm pretty sure we did what we could, **** happens ask jumbo Joe. Also, he was very good and very consistent, yet consistently let in at least 1 bad goal a game. Loved Hank and was a big backer of his, but that easily faded after cup loss.
