Your response conveys defensiveness. No need to be, at all. After all, whether it comes to pass or not, at this point in time it is just a rumor.

I simply don't think that the Pens or most anyone these days wants to add Jagr-like money (even with the Caps kicking in $17M, an astronomical number, as noted by Flyercide), at least not at this point in the season. You do. Difference of opinion, and I respect your's.

Put it this way: if the Pen's were able to commit to Jagr's contract, there certainly would be a lot of raised eyebrows. It flies in the face of why they moved both him and Kovalev in the first place.
