There was a rumor that came out when he signed his contract that he wasn't going to play out the final year. It was just an extra year tacked on to reduce the cap hit as seen in this article.

Don't know if there's any veracity to it though, and even if there was, he could have changed his mind. If he feels he's still playing at a high enough level, he may decide to stick it out for a little while longer. Maybe he wants to win a Cup before he retires. Then again, he still goes back to Finland every summer. Maybe he'd rather play out his final years at home.
