Very simple - I think Ryder on Gomez's wing would be deadly. I also think he's going to be way undervalued coming off of his down year. So, I want a 3 or 4 year Ryder deal at a reasonable price over a 1 year Jagr rental. And I very much want it over a 2-3 year chaining of the team to a declining Jagr.

However, I do want that 1 year Jagr rental (more obviously than a deal with any of the other potential FA signings out there, since I listed it as one of my "three") because, barring a trade this offseason, we're going to need his scoring until we can find a way to replace it at the trade deadline/next year's FA period/through the development of the kids (which in all likelihood means Cherepanov in North America).

Does this mean that I think that Ryder is a better player than Jagr? No, it means that I think he's a better fit for this team - especially going forward into 09 and beyond.
