    Just saw this now on Twitter and WOW !!!! I don't remember any incident with the Rangers where a heart condition came up.

    His heart couldn't stand the pain of playing for another organization.
    Onward.

    Does this affect the Rangers in anyway?

    Couldn't they mutually agree to terminate?

    Not with a 35+ contract. He can go on LTIR, though.

    https://www.capfriendly.com/ltir-faq
    Basic Equation Example
    The league upper limit is $69M. A team has an averaged club salary of $68M and a player with a 35+ contract with an AAV of $5M ($3M cap hit and $2M in performance bonuses) becomes injured and the team places him on LTIR. The LTIR relief pools are calculated as follows:

    AAV of LTIR player is $5M
    Cap space = $69M - $68M = $1M
    ACSL = $69M - $1M = $68M
    LTIR relief:
    Base salary relief pool: $3M
    Performance bonus pool: $2M

    Once the team operates above $68M, they have $3M in salary relief, and $2M in performance bonus relief pools.

    I assume we still owe the buy out/cap hit and LTIR does not impact that retroactively.

    Considering that decision seems to have been the product of a lot of testing and consideration over some time, as opposed to something quick and obvious, I hope this is precautionary.

    I feel a little guilty to benefit from this by probably never seeing him in another uniform.

    Only concern I have is that he figures out a way to deal with his heart issue and the best way forward for himself and his family.

    Oh man this is awful news, yikes. Hopefully he can recover from this and have a healthy quality of life, that's the most important thing.

    Wish the best for him; over/under on retirement and a job with the Blueshirts within the year?
