Yup. Currently no one's property so I just deleted him from the UFA list.

Traditionally we haven't retired them because most of the time it isn't totally clear if they are done or not.

Makes sense that he plays out the year, do to LITR. He's going to disappear from the ratings grid next year, so enjoy it while you can.

How is the NHL team saying "Johnny Boychuk’s career has come to an end" not totally clear

Isn't this why we have penalties on signing UFA's

The NHL situation has made this more confusing than it used to be. We used to rely on some sort of specific use of the word "retire" but now players are done, but don't retire, because instead they are placed on LTIR. So we've generally allowed those players to remain active, but their ratings take the hit going forward. That's what was done with Savard, Horton, Hossa, and others in the past.

I'm totally open to how to make this less ambiguous. But that's what creating the confusion, and generally where we try to draw upon how we've handled in the past.
