He pushed Buffalo pretty hard for money before he had that breakout season offensively so I'm not so sure that he would want a major paycut after his contract is up either.

Jags didn't ask for a number AFAIK, the negotiations never got that far because Slats didn't agree to a 2 year offer. It was clear that Slats wasn't really interested in getting Jagr resigned. After hearing Renney say "I'm not sure thats what we need" in response to Nedved's offense I'm convinced that Renney didn't really want Jagr back either.
