it means they can't roll over bonuses for Jagr/Sundin

why bring up guys who obviously aren't ready to play at the NHL level and perhaps sacrifice their development? that's something a team like the Leafs or the Islanders would do, not the post-lockout Rangers. Why not let the kids continue to develop as they should rather than rush them along just so we don't have to sign free agents?
bingo. Sundin or Jagr means the team goes deeper into the playoffs and the young players get playoff experience and get to learn from some of the greatest players in their generation. replacing Jagr with Korpikoski means you have a team filled with kids spinning their wheels. don't believe me, compare the Red Wings personnel moves with the Blue Jackets.
