he was injured. He played through it, and TRAINED through it (rookie mistake)

I expect Jagr to do better, given no injuries, since he plans on losing 15-20lbs. That will make him much faster.

We CANNOT lose Jagr and JvR and expect our offense to be as stacked as it was last year. Jagr (or some very good winger) is a must for us now.

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Simmonds-Briere-Schenn
Read-Couturier-Wellwood

is not as scary a top 9. lets imagine a very realistic scenario:
Briere gets hurt (or anyone in the top 9)

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Simmonds-Schenn-Read
Harry Z - Couturier - Wellwood

I'm just not comfortable with that. Since Voracek, Schenn, and Cooter are so young, what is the reason to not have Jagr back for just 1 more year?

How can we not afford 3 mil (assuming we're not getting parise)
