My guess is they think he will get more playing time in the AHL and will be more likely to reinjure himself into retirement there instead of playing once a week. Plus isles have back to back Sat and Sunday and want to have a shot at both games.
Call me crazy - but it's unlikely that anyone retires and leaves $40M still on the table. RDP will keep trying to play until Wang decides to buy him out (and I don't blame RDP one bit for doing that).
