Okay. I wrote about this last Saturday when Jagr told Dries (a Prague paper) that both he and Jiri Dopita were done playing for the National Team after this series.
It has nothing to do with the NHL for Jagr.
Unless something unforeseen occurs, JJ has 100% intention of playing out his NHL contract.
He has stated more than once that he's upset with himself for the past two seasons and will do what he can to restore his reputation as the single best hockey player in the world. He has also made mention that as he observes the current youth movement happening on Broadway, he believes that maybe (at his age) it is now his responsibility to assist the development of the younger guys. But this youth movement has not made him officially wish to be elsewhere. He has stated numerous times that New York is always where he wished to play and now that he is here, he is not seeking a trade elsewhere.
For Bobby Holik, the situation
But for JJ, it's Gotham through 2007.
No World Champinships.
No World Cups.
Just Rangers during the season and "Team Jagr" over the summer.
