I agree. I'm hoping we sign either Gaustad or McClement. A fourth line of Wellwood-Gaustad/McClement-Talbot would be terrific, and they are all (more or less) able to step up into the top nine should there be an injury, or if it turns out that Read was a one-year-wonder, or if Couturier isn't quite ready to take on a bigger role after all, or if...

I'm just saying that re-signing Jagr (to a reasonable cap hit) wouldn't be a terrible decision. Not the one I would go with, but not that crazy and outlandish.
