Worst case scenario would be several more years like this year where he's up in the air and we continue to hear the word "symptoms" all the time. If he does retire you're off the hook cap wise, but you figure that it could drag on for years before he retires. Plus it's still real money the Pens have to pay and despite recent success this org is not a bottomless cash pit like some other orgs.
Just to be clear though I actually am optimistic that Sid will be fine and I am quite happy with this news. Merely making some observations from a business perspective.
Penguins may not have to pay in full. Pending knowledge of the insurance of the contract.
