    How exactly does insurance work. More specifically with regards to salary. I recall a number of years back there being reference to salaries being paid by the insurance companies when a player is injured rather than team.

    Is this true? And if so, what impact do you think this has on teams willing to sign players to contracts who were injured in terms of weighing paid salary versus insurance cost increases and whatnot.

    Edit: I think I misunderstood exactly what you meant. Nevermind, I'll let someone who knows more than me about this answer.

    C & P from the Will Savard get paid if he retires? thread:

    Most of this info came from a piece originally in the News & Observer. That article seems to be no longer available at the N & O website - but this link a copy of the article:
