Anything much over Kostitsyn's 3.25 a year and we walk away.

Our leading scorers last season had all of 57, 47, 46 and 45 points. Do you honestly believe Jagr still couldn't be at least a 50-60 point player today?


Well I don't know. Do you think a 40 year old Teemu Selanne could put up over 80. Could a 37 year old Tim Thomas win the vezina? Could a 43 year old Mark Recchi put up 50?

Jagr was one o the league's besn his prime. Just because he's gotten older doesn't mean he isn't still an incredible athlete. He put up 50 points in 50 games in the KHL. At that pace he'd put up 82 in a full NHL season. Ofcoarse, you'd have to take into account that he'll be playing in a much tougher league, but also the fact that he'll have much better linemates as well. I would say a 20 point subtraction is fair.
