If he refuses to report, the Bruins would then have the option of tolling his contract, as the Islanders did with Nabakov. But they won't because who wants a 39 year old goalie with a 5 million dollar cap hit reappearing on their roster after not playing for a year? Boston can accomodate the cap hit for this year of they need to (they had enough cap room last year that they didn't put Savard on LTIR...) or they can trade the 5million cap hit/zero salary equation to someone else.
