Desire to deal Jagr & Holik is very different from reality. Sather may desire to unload the $20m that the 2 of them are going to count against a cap/luxury tax. But reality dictates that NO ONE is going to trade for the respective $11m & $9m hit against any type of cap/luxury tax.
And I may not know Jackass personally, but I can telly you one thing. The chances of either Jagr or Holik being bought out is about the same as Jeff Toms netting 40 goals at the NHL level next year. No matter how Jackass is ticked off at Holik for not drinking the kool-aid, he is NOT going to buy him out.
