He would have gotten the full amount either way.
I really doubt he was trying to screw the Rangers and he just wanted to continue his career. Would've made more sense for him to announce his retirement either earlier or later in the off-season if that were the case as well, because this is one of the only things for people to talk about in the hockey world and it very well might be for weeks.
