they are very strict on injuries...wither your injured or your not ...ie doctors etc........

if he is actually injured then his cap hit will remain and he will be on LTIR.....which in my understanding would remain with his current employer......and whether insurance or that team foots the bill....he will be paid...and most likely wont retire to receive benfits...ie like pronger...will never retire due to injury and getting paid while injured.
