Yes but the decision to not retain him was in part to hand over the team to Gomez and Drury.

We had a legit superstar in Jagr who could still take over a game at basically any time he wanted to (see 08 playoffs) and we just let him go to turn the team over to these two guys and sign Wade Redden. That offseason alone set us back a while.
