Arizona, Boston, Calgary, Chicago (Holy Yikes), Columbus, Dallas, Minnesota, Nashville, NYI, NYR, Philly, St. Louis, Toronto, Vegas, and Winnipeg all hang up instantly <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>arafay</b></div><div>Not necessarily. He would be retiring for health reasons and I’m pretty sure the recapture only applies to players who signed contracts that were like 10/15 years (kovalchuck, luongo, parise, sutter, Weber to name a few). Those contracts are penalized because both parties knew the likelihood of them making it to the end was low. There isn’t really one for current players. See Callahan, zetterberg etc
The jets could also just terminate it like they did with buff, if little was willing to do so</div></div>
Well it specified retirement, if he is "legally not cleared to play due to a lingering injury" then yes he can stay on LTIR and collect his money. A terminated contract has to be agreed upon by both parties or in the case of Buff, the player under contract has to violate the rules and restrictions of said contract.
Still doesn't make any sense for Toronto. having players on LTIR means your cap is pseudo increased to what teams total cap hit is if they were healthy, not the league cap + the player's cap hit. meaning to maximize the LTIR cap space the team has to be at the cap ceiling when you exclude his contract. Furthermore, due to being above the league cap the team is unable to accrue cap space as the season progresses making trade deadline acquisitions very difficult.
