If you take SG's quote at face value fine, then take JJ's actions & comments at face value as well.

If you are right about SG's intentions with that comment - neither is gunning for teamate of the year.
I agree that what Jagr did with Omsk was classless also. I'm just apt to be more forgiving because of what he gave us during his tenure here.

We are talking about one of the ten best forwards to ever play the game. I know that shouldn't affect my judgment but it does.

One thing all of this points out quite clearly is that the Rangers had a fractured locker room last year, probably the prime reason that Avery is no longer here, too.
