Pronger shouldnt have to come back every year and pretend to try and come back if he truly can't just to help the team out
If he retires he doesn't get his salary either.
It can't be difficult to come to Philly skate around in non contact drills for two weeks and get 1 million dollars.
I really don't see how anyone just walks away from that.
Heck even if he can't skate for 1 minute, there is the LTIR. He's not going to "retire" on paper until the contract ends.
