Guys, $12 million doesn't make any sense. I think everyone knows, including those smart people over in Russia, that Jagr will never get more than $6 million from an NHL team. Why would they offer him $6 million more? $12 million is just crazy talk. Do they think $6 million MORE will get him to go home where he wants to be in a year anyway? Not a shot in hell the offer is near $12 million, I find it just absurd that this is believable. They don't need to spend this type of money to prove a point.

I'll streak around the Garden next fall if this is true
