That does fancy some players. Even elite ones.
Exactly, look at my points. He's already made his millions, won cups, titles, etc...
He's probably not lookin to get ripped by the media as eventually, he'll start to decline, but just having him around guys like Frolik would probably be good, even though there are some reports about his attitude issues in the past. I think he's over that though. If we can give him a good salary, nothing insane, but maybe 6 million, then he could enjoy an awesome lifestyle living in South FLA and could slip out of the spotlight. People would love him on the Panthers. Even if Jokinen could have arguably been a better player, all the casual fans in South Fla would see Jagr and be like "wow Panthers have him, he's so good, etc...." and they'd think we had a superstar for them to come see. Who the Hell are people going to want to come watch now? Bouwmeester? Psh yeah righttt. Vokoun, w/e, he's goalie. People like scoring and winning. If we're not winning, they want excitement at least, and Jagr would be on par with the attraction of Bure when he was here from the name alone.
