Not really retiring but will be on LTIR until contract is done 

I would say he is retiring it’s just a way for teams to circumvent the cap.

For our league's purposes, it's a retirement.  Which means he'll be released at no charge from any team that owns him.  

 

If you own him, please drop him on Fantrax.  i've already taken care of the spreadsheets.

Man .. Hard to believe this guy has played with some of the best from an era gone by. Yzerman, Federov, Hull, Shanahan, Manny Legace, Robitaille, Schneider, Chelios Hasek , Cujo. Datsyuk and Lidstrom more currently. 

 

Fuckin detroit has been amazing over the years.

Manny Legace?

 

Sad that we won’t get a chance to see Zetterberg for one more season, and that he won’t be able to mentor all the young guys in the twilight of his career. Seems that’s always been part of the model in Detroit.

Are they circumventing the cap? Dude's back is messed up. Hard to argue with that. Although, last season's 82 games might be suspicious.

They are circumventing the cap because they are putting him on LTIR and he will not "officially" retire (even though he is). This creates more cap flexibility by listing him as LTIR than retired. Similar thing to Franzen. Everyone knows they are never playing again due to injury but they are listed as LTIR.
