And...I am not totally against the idea of Jagr. Just not into the idea of Jagr as this teams first line Right Wing. Hell I am not even convinced that he's going to beat out Ryan Callahan for the 2nd line.

Keep him under 3 mil and I would be happy. However...I don't think Jagr is looking to take less to come back. Someone will give him at least 4 or 4.5 I would think.
Jagr at that price is a more efficient gamble than Gaborik at his price, and despite the age difference, Jagr has proven to be the less likely of the two to break down.
