Losing Jagr will greatly hurt our chances in making the playoffs....you think if we add Ryder (who was brutal this season) and Hagman that we will be the same..or better?

Your forgetting that everytime Jagr is on the ice so is the other teams TOP defenseman, so even if Jagr isn't scoring, he is still keeping top pairs from playing against Gomez's line and Dru's line. That alone is huge.

Then add the fact Jagr is still our leading point getter, and was by far our most effective player in the playoffs.....

It will just be silly not to get him resigned this year....we need him until we are able to replace him, and nobody this UFA year can do that (Sorry, not paying Hossa 9 million).

Ive been a HUGE Sather fan since the trade deadline before the lockout, but so far, he has been brutal this offseason..I really hope things change before July 1st (which they can with a snap of a finger if he wants)....so I still have hope Slats knows what he is doing.
