Jagrs' buyout after this season is 33 mil. (75% of the remaining 44 mil.)

So if Leonis is so interested in buying him out, why all the trade talk, wait until the end of the year and buy him out. It will only cost him 13 mil more.

Remember in order for the Rangers to take on this ridiculous contract that Washingtons owner signed, it has to work for them also. It can't be a one way street.
