Wikipedia claims (uncited) that he played the additional year because of financial troubles.

I have difficulty believing this, because his 1993-94 season was spent with the Penguins as a player/assistant coach. This suggests that he was still under contract through at least 1994 when he retired in 1992. He remained an assistant coach with Pittsburgh through 1997, took an AHL head coaching job in Portland, and then returned to the NHL as an assistant with Colorado (and got another ring in 2001).
