It's simple business logic...assuming he's not a moron.
too many If/I's.

I agree with your point, but i've never been a potential 39 year old man at the tail end of an nhl career. Maybe the Flyers are horrendous by that time, and while not injured per se, the wear and tear on his body has wilted away his will to play 1 final season.

See: Jake Plummer, the man who would rather retire then play for the TB Bucs
