I would imagine that if he is filing career ending injury assistance paperwork and looking to receive a pension, etc. than he cannot come off the LTIR at all. I would also say that if he is filing this paperwork than he is pretty committed/resigned to the fact that he's not playing EVER again and not just this season. Why bother applying for a pension if you think you could be back again next year?

The silver lining then, is that if he is resigned to the fact that he'll never play again, he shouldn't be opposed to waiving his NMC for us, since he'll be able to stay at home with his family regardless, after showing up for a physical. Unless he's specifically wants to keep the Rangers on the hook for his money, I don't see why it should matter who holds the rights to his final year if he's not going to play again.
