Sure, it eases the blow to be set financially (hopefully he had good financial advisors), but doesn't change the fact that he can't do the one thing he loves and knows (or knew) how to do well. I sincerely hope he's got other career ambitions/interests that he finds fulfilling.
Guy has made over $68M playing hockey since 1995. Two years left giving him almost $6M more - to do nothing. Not many people (less than 0,001% of the world) make that kind of cash anywhere. Not saying that money is all - but it has certainly given him fantastic opportunities later in life that a miniscule fraction of the world population will ever get. I hope he enjoys it too, and I am sure he will get over his "treatment by the NYRs during his steep demise".
