I agree... If they want to be hardass about it due to the Cap Contract shenanigans they can easily stop the LTIR... But, if they want to be understanding and look at it as just an over 35 guy that had a unfortunate accident and was in no way an attempt to circumvent the CBA they could look the other way. To me he spirit of the 35 rule was not for these cases rather to stop circumvention by long Cap friendly contract... which this was clearly not.

But, yeah I'm worried also.
