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.
Having an injury that forces you to end your career and be eligible for insurance is different than having an injury that hurts your ability of being a productive hockey player. Insurance companies aren't really known to generously give out money.
