No, he's entitled to the money.... How can he be deserving of it if he can't keep up and compete? Do you believe a player's responsibility to perform ends the day the contract is signed? If so, I guess every player in the league is deserving of their salary regardless of what they do on the ice.... That's a tough concept to grasp.
I also don't think he cares all that much about how people he's never met remember him. It will come down to him and his family and I think they'll be proud of him regardless and he'll remember the good times and championship teams.
People he never met? We're talking about his image and reputation in professional hockey. Not some fans on a message board. You don't think these athletes pay any attention to their images/reputations within professional hockey outside of what their friends & families think?
Of course there are other revenue streams available, but maybe his big plan is to never work again after retiring from hockey....
Doubtful considering he's already involved in running a business outside of hockey.
