The 3rd and 4th year just soften up the cap hit a lot, and he can retire at any point.
He's also over 35 so if he retires the Rangers still cop the cap hit for the reamining years which is why a multi-year deal for Jagr is a baaaaad idea.

Also, I was going to make a thread on this but it can go here.... people keep saying that Jagr wants one more shot at the cup etc. Do we really think that bringing back Avery and Jagr, signing a top-6 secondary scorer and changing some names on D will make this team a cup contender? The Pens have shown they are the team to beat in the East while Wash, Philly, Mont etc will probbaly keep improving as well. Most line-ups posted have the Rangers going into next season with a similiar team (different names, same abilities) as the one that crashed out this year. If Jagr really wants one more shot at the cup he'll sign a one year deal with the Pens
