Correct.

Hypothetically speaking, let's say he's able to get a Hossa. Or maybe pull off some kind of trade for Jokinen, without giving up Dubinsky or Staal. Then is able to sign either Orpik or Lilja.

At this point it wouldn't be a bad idea to try and sign Jagr to a resonable contract (incentive-laden) and have one hell of a first and second line punch. One, Two punch!

Of course this is a pipe dream and the chances are slimmer than slim.

But even if they get a guy like Hossa, add a guy like Cory Stillman (to a one or two year deal) and Orpik or Lilja; you have a major upgrade. Then see where you are with Jagr.

You just never know how things could play out.

I still think the Rangers need a winger like Malone in their lineup. Would be a difficult/expensive signing; but they need some size on the wing.
