Jagr-Richards-Gaborik till Gabbys contract runs out in 2013/14.

1) Jagr gets to play without pressure of carrying the team or the line.
2) Even if his wheels fail, he was always a floater anyway, but his shot should still be good, let him play clean up on the Richards/Gabby line.
3) If MDZ makes the team, it gives him a chance to play on the 2nd pp vs opposing teams 2nd teir players while Richards + D? play points and Dubi/JJ/Cally cycle. Dubi had good chemistry with JJ the 1st time and Callys & Dubi's board work and Chemistry were appently lacking when Cally went down.

Seems like a no brainer as long as JJ accepts his role and a low dollar amount. And the fans accept that roll out of him and don't boo the snot out of him beacuse he's not "JAROMIR JAGR" anymore.
I love Jagr, but I just don't think he has it in him to play in the NHL effectively anymore. He knows this or he would already be here, money be damned, in my opinion.
