This doesn't make any sense. Even if Washinton picks up a lot of salary, Jagr would still eat up 1/3 of their player budget. And they would have to give up the players that can help them in 3-4 years time for a 30+ guy?

Penguins would be absolutely insane to do it. They have already done the hardest part of rebuilding and tearing that down just to start from scratch again in a few years would be nuts.

The only way I can see anything like this happening is that the team is moving cities and will have a much healthier economic climate and would need a franchise player post-Mario. But even then Jagr is a poor fit. Why would he want to come back to a Pengiun team that has very small similarites to the ones he played on?
