I believe you bro. These hockey announcers love to talk about the sports that they cover when you run into them. I think Rozsival's injury and poor play last year brings his price tag down and I think he'll come back on a one or two year deal. I figured Avery is definitely gone and Shanny is retiring. But I don't think Jagr is coming back. I think it's 50/50 now that the Russian deal has supposedly been extended to 3 yrs. I also believe that the Rangers have an interest in Malone, Orpik and Campbell but I don't think there's anyway that they will sign ALL three. And I think the Mats Sundin reports are just out there to camoflague the Avery and Jagr contract situations. The Rangers are leaking rumors connecting them to other high profile UFAs to take the pressure off of them not signing Avery and Jagr because it will be a PR nightmare once those guys are gone.
