It also means you will not be sitting on the bench. Players with lesser contracts can be scratched, moved, bought out or traded. I have met many players over my career who were better than others. Yet these guys were demoted because of their [smaller] contracts. That's why money is still important to me."

and that's 100% true

Jagr=the man.
