It doesn't sound like he's willing to do that. I think after his last 2011-2012 injury and surgery, he told Newsday that retirement hadn't crossed his mind.
I was just saying that the Isles have never put him on IR, as far as I know. He's always occupied a roster spot, so insurance hasn't even come into play yet. If he retired, that would be a different ball of wax.
