Once Jagr's contract was up, the team saw the opportunity to move on and build the roster more towards their style. But with Jagr on the roster, of course they were going to cater to Jagr offensively. He was their best player and they wanted to put him in the best position to succeed.

It's quite simple.
And how do you know this? By WATCHING the team Jagr played more of a defensive style, he was the first one back on many occasions(something he was NEVER with the Pens or Caps)....he was not playing his game it was VERY obvious he was playing what the coach wanted him to. So I really have no idea what your talking about.

Did you watch the team last season? Or are you just going by what Cap/Pens fan say?
