To me it's more simplistic than that, it was 1 year vs. multi-year deal. Sather was adamant about a 1 year deal with bonuses, Jagr wanted a multi-year deal. If his Agents statements were honest in that Brooks article posted above, about Jagr wanting a mult-year deal and still wanting to play in the NHL for another 2-3 years, I would have imagined Jagr would have been open to signing a multi-year offer with another NHL team, however given the cap implications, I doubt he was tendered any.
