That is something I have considered as well. But then, why not get an insurance settlement on this? To my knowledge, this possibility was ruled out.

Players who cannot live up to their commitments because of an injury get my sympathy. In that case, they settle, retire, whatever. Guys like Cherneski, Berard have done it in the past.

They can even come back later.
