b) I don't think anyone is saying Jagr is the answer to all our problems. But, he was great for us a few years ago. He has great chemistry with Dubinsky (who's made big strides since Jags last was here as well) and he may be available for a 1 year deal, in which case there's low risk, high reward. No reason NOT to inquire about how much $ Jagr is looking for if its a 1 year deal. You'd be stupid not to consider it.
Jagr on a 1 year deal at 4 million or less = absolute no-brainer. I think he signs with Detroit or Pittsburgh if he comes back to the NHL though.
I'm not sure we should be so quick and ready to bank on Dubinsky and Jagr still having that chemistry, especially since Dubinsky isn't playing center anymore.
