Several reasons. First of all, with the upcoming CBA armageddon, neither Leclair's 3 years at $9m/per nor Jagr's 5 years at $11m/per looks attractive. That's why Jagr has not been dealt. That's a HUGE contract to be saddled with heading into a lockout. The same goes for Leclair, but you also have to add to that the fact that he is STILL not recovered from his shoulder injury and has been displaced from the Flyer top 2 lines. No need for another huge contract for an injured fading star.
