While NHL probably won't miss him at this point, it's worth mentioning that he had all but retired at the end of the season. The constant health troubles were too much. But during the summer TPS approached him and he spent few weeks with the team and finally both parties decided to give it a shot.

Hopefully he can remain relatively healthy now. He probably won't even be #1 goalie in TPS but maybe he doesn't have to quit the sport just yet.
