Yea, they had better be taking Kaspar. I also like the idea of the Rangers frontloading Jagrs contract for this year so that the potential cap wont really hurt them. I still think Jagr can be near a franchise type player. My problem: He doesn't have the franchise type attitude.
Jagr isn't my first choice, but if we can find a way to lessen his potential cap hit considerably then I'd take him. Maybe re-work his contract to give him 20 million this season and split the rest up evenly over the course of the next few seasons. Like Pearls article said... Bure's contract should get mostly picked up by insurance and Lindros contract will be less because he wont meet the games played clause so there should be some more money there.
If nothing else, he'd be fun to watch.
