If that is how it works, I am not really sure where "ethics" come into play, I can't imagine Snider really gives a crap about spending 2.2M.
Pretty much.

Lappy has no reason to "retire"... as the only reason he isn't playing is because he blocked a slapshot with his face and has permanent nerve damage to his eye (I'd want the money, too). So, LTIR seems like the way this will go.
