with all due respect in the past 4 years jagr has missed 25 games due to injury. i don't think that he has a chronic injury problem. if you look at forsberg kariya or selanne they have missed MORE time. not everybody can be healthy. the rangers gave up nothing for jagr. the rangers are paying him 6 million a year. a first line built around jagr is a great first line. it remains to be seen what players the rangers will play with jagr in the future but i think he was a great pickup. honestly who would you rather have anson carter or jagr?
