I think Jagr message is pretty clear:

1. I wont play for less then Drury or Gomez if Sather wants me.
2. It is not about money. It is about recognition. Since this is New York and money here has always been the way to recognize an athlete, I must take money.

Did anyone think that Jagr is worth less then 7 million? Not me.
Even if he isn't, it was not his fault that Sather shelled so much on Gomer and Dru. Should they make 6 million, I am sure Jagr would settle for 6.5 million a year just to be on top. Otherwise he would be the same as those two. I do not blame him for feeling insulted with this. No one can be great as a result of insult, esp. a school children who take it every day and then come to this board to say bad things about one of the greatest players in history of the game.
