It seems like the more bigger names the Rangers brought in to improve the team, Jagr's production went down with attention taken away. This was also one of the reasons why Jagr was traded from Pittsburgh.

2. In order to feel like the go-to-guy, Jagr has to be the highest paid player on the team, which is ********. It's clearly about money and fame for him, and he's not going to have the money or the fame in Pittsburgh. Crosby and Malkin are the highest paid players and the focal points of that team. I can't see how Pittsburgh could even make room for Jagr, and how Jagr could go back there after his antics leading up to his departure.

While I'm not an expert, and I'm not going to rule out a return there, I just don't see it happening. Too many factors that hurt the case rather than help it.
No one should rule out the Rangers yet, Sather told him if JJ doesnt like what he sees to contact the Rangers
