Would it possible that we trade him to St Louis? I dont know the technicals behind that, but maybe he wants to retire as a blue?

There were no conditons noting that a 35+ contract could not be bought out in the amnesty buyout period. He can't be bought out because he hasn't been cleared to play.

Conditions of the amnesty buyout:

(a) All teams are eligible to exercise a maximum of one buyout before the season starts, and that buyout would count against the allotted two amnesty buyouts per team.

(b) In order to be eligible to be bought out now, the player must have a cap hit of at least $3 million.

(c) Before a player can be bought out, he must be placed on waivers by Thursday January 17, 2013 (Both Gomez and Redden have been placed on waivers).

(d) The player has to consent to being bought out by Friday, January 18, 2013.

(e) A player being bought out gets paid his salary for this season (pro-rated to account for the compressed schedule).

(f) The player's cap hit still counts against the team buying out the player. So the Gomez contract for this season will count against the Canadiens salary cap. If the player is sent to the minors before the buyout, the team enjoys a $900,000 discount on the cap hit. Both Redden and Gomez were sent to the minors first, so their cap hits have been discounted to $5.6 million and $6.5 million, respectively.

(g) All buyouts will count against the player's share of revenue.

(h) The NHL and NHLPA settlement has been agreed to on a 'without prejudice' basis. That means that either side can't use it against the other side in any future legal proceedings or as a precedent of any kind. The legal effect of this deal is restricted to this subject matter – and that's it.
Amnesty buyout also cannot be used because the season has started; it was intended for each of the next two off-seasons.

Yeah I knew all that, it was the 35+ thing that I didn't hear, which I guess was not accurate.

Stream isn't showing anything yet, either technical difficulty or they're a few minutes late.

Any of u consider the idea that maybe he's been cleared but does not want to risk his life health by continuing?

"It doesn't look like that type of Conference," Pronger when asked if this was a retirement announcement.

There's no way he's been cleared.

He's still feeling some bad effects of PCS.

Based on the Sportsnet interview, there's no way he's been cleared to play hockey.

"Eyes still troubling, not working properly. I still don't have what worked well in the past. I keep needing stronger glasses and just got another prescription. Peripheral vision has not come back....I get dizzy and lightheaded."
