On the integrity front--it would be a classy move on his part if he were to retire.
Maybe he doesn't think he is done.
I don't know. Rangers should make their wishes explicit to him to retire. If he won't then buy him out. As a player he is not even close to worth paying the amount we would save and we'd be better to use the savings to bring in other players who are worth it or use the money to sign essential players such as our own RFA's--a number of whom will probably get substantial raises.
I will say this if he takes the money from a buyout which is his right--but then he is done with the organization--no post retirement opportunities. If he wants to go see the Rangers he buys a ticket like anyone else.
Wolski and Avery are other issues. Wolski perhaps is moveable. Avery a lot less so. I wouldn't send Sean to the minors--at least not to Hartford. You can save quite a bit of cash with Wolski--not very much with Avery. The other thing is they are both still very capable of playing in the NHL.
Bolded is easily rectified. Just give him some game tapes from this year to watch. After watching a few periods of his lackluster play, even his wife would think he's done.
