That's the funny thing about professional sports. Everyday it's a business but then when it comes to players contracts then it's all about team...

That's not how contracts work. In la la land that doesn't exist that's how they work. In reality they're constantly broken by banks, governments, everyone. At best they're just an excuse to sue people. Better read the fine print...

Regardless in this case it's not a broken contract. He has a clear, legal, right to retire. It's in the CBA. He doesn't want to play in the NHL and he doesn't get paid. Simple and perfectly moral. It would be immoral to be paid and not to play...

Which is what most players do in this situation. Simply be to injured to play and take the check for a couple of years.

So? He took the biggest check.... I'd do it if I had the option. Hell, everyone in reality would as well.
