Different team, different philosophies, different needs.

NYR had the money to spend, but chose to pay UFA market value on defense instead of at forward.

Implications for going over the limit are dead cap space the following year. Implications for giving multi-year deals to players over 35, in Jagr's case, would be applying that cap hit over the term of the contract even if the player cannot fulfill it.
