I'd love to eat my words, but come on.
Jagr has made about 100 million in the NHL. Has made another 30 million playing in Russia.

2 million is pocket change. As neofury mentioned above, Jagr is looking to make history with his accolades and accomplishments.

Not sure why everyone seems to think Jagr is about the money. He has that already, he just wants more recognition when it comes to assessing him in the top 10 best players of all time.

What better place than Montreal. An original six team, one of the most storied franchises in all of sports, a team that had guys like Lafleur, Beliveau, Richard dawn their jersey.

Jagr is a student of the game and wants to retire with a great impact, he doesn't want to fade into obscurity.
