Definitely want Jagr on the team, especially if Brad Richards is signed.

Dubinsky - Richards - Gabby
Wolski - Stepan - Jagr
Zuccarello - Anisimov - Callahan
Hagelin - Boyle - Prust

That's a hell of a lineup there. Pretty much everyone can get 10+ goals and the top-9 can also hit 20 goals.

The Rangers were 29 goals behind the NHL leader (Vancouver) in Goals For last year. If Brad Richards can get Gabby back to 40 goals, and Brad and Jagr can each score half a dozen goals more than whoever they would be replacing, that's an extra 30 goals production.

With Brad Richards and Jagr added to the team (as well as Erixon and hopefully a competent QB in MDZ), the Rangers could be the dark horse contender.
