If we don't have plans to add any additional forwards, then by all means keep Jagr because he is a solid stop gap until next off season or a trade comes along. However, if we make the push for Nash then I would not consider putting pen to paper with Jagr until Nash is for sure not coming.
What do you feel is better for the development of younger players.
Jagr being on the team, doing his crazy ass training in the middle of the night, while also being a top 10 player of all time.
Not having Jagr and allowing players a little more ice time to further along their development.
