Sure they don't have to pay the salary but it could impact how they can spend in the summer. First and foremost, if he retires, you need someone to replace him with. Let's just say that'll cost about the same as what Niewy would've gotten...$2.25 mil. That's less money in the supposed $10 million pool that Cohen was going to up spending on the team to upgrade the defense like so many of you want. But now what do you think if he retires with what I've brought attention to? Do you really think he was worth $4.5 million of cap space for just 1 season of play if he retires (heck he didn't even play the whole season)?
Soooo, with the Devs set to take a 7 mil hit against the cap for those 2, will they have enough room to re-sign Elias?? If not, I hope Keenan's all over that guy. He came back and Jersey was a whole different team, he's incredible. Plus, would be nince to get a Panther killer on the team so he can work for us instead of against. (*note, i do realize chances are beyond slim he'll come, but if there's a slight chance, i hope they jump)

Joe's not going anywhere yet!

They'll have enough room to re-sign Elias because they'll probably not bring back someone like Kozlov (his almost $2 mil could go to Elias) and because the cap is going up next yr. Lou knows what would happen if he lost Elias (interesting to note that the pace he was on...if he had played the whole season, he would've been among the league leaders around the 100pt mark). They can also let go of some other guys like Oliwa and/or Wiemer to get some cap space if necessary.

Yeah, I don't think they'll let him go, and I'm certain they'll make room for him. LOL, keep Kozlov, Weimer, and/or Oliwa and lose Elias? , I think I'd go with Elias too...though stranger things have happened.

He probably would've been up there in points, guy's amazing.

well, it looks like the report from Garrioch was true. Nieuwendyk did in fact consider retirement. http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald...y/15707305.htm
