$4 million? Yikes. I swear there reports of him taking a discount to play here earlier in the season or am I going crazy? Guess that's gone either way. Haha. Although if there aren't any other options for cheaper or around the same price, I'd be fine giving him $4 million for a one year deal.
EDIT: Also, IIRC someone posted a while back something in realm of that in the first year of a 35+ contract under the current CBA, the cap hit can come off the books if he is sent down or retires. I'm not anticipating that happening to Jagr but it does take some of the risk away if my recollection of that is true.
