The Caps won't get anything near Jagr's "normal" value. If they would, then Jagr would be a Ranger (or a Red wing or whatever) since the beginning of the season...
You are forgetting a few things:

1) The Caps will be eating a good portion of Jagr's contract. So quick using "the contract" as a way to devalue Jagr's worth. The reason the Caps will eat salary is so they can GET value for Jagr. If the decide to trade Jagr without eating any salary then yes, I agree with you: his value is so much lower. But the Caps have said they are willing to eat a good sized portion.

2) The Rangers, even though they have extremely deep pockets, will have to move players (salaries) to take on players (salaries). It will not be a one for one deal IMO.

3) I am neither a Caps fan nor a Rangers fan so quick accusing me of "trolling". Thanks.
