Im sure the Rangers were the ones to walk away, as soon as they heard his demands. It wouldnt be any different this time around.

Jagr is a proud guy - nothing wrong with that, but no way in hell he comes here without the stature of being paid top dollar. Again, he made $30M tax free in the KHL over the last 3 seasons. That made the decision pretty easy.
