Marc Savard and the cap

In another thread some posters were explaining how LTIR works with the cap. Some good information there, thanks. Seems Savard's cap hit is an annoyance. It can be used but it only in certain ways. It would be helpfull to clear it completely if possible. Unlike Thomas, if Savard retires, the cap his is gone, correct? The issue becomes Savard getting paid. Can't he retire for medical reasons and have insurance pay his salary? I'm sure this must be common. His no trade clause expires 2014, so if they could in theory trade him to a cap floor challenged team as his salary drops off the face of the earth after that. At what point do you, as GM, push this issue?
