Jagr is a bad example, as he makes 10 million. For starters it is salary dumping, paying 2 million is 1/5th of his contract. But the reality is in situations of 8, 9, 10 million dollar players, the only way to move them is to eat salary either from that player's contract or by aquiring another team's overpaid player, so your example isn't very realistic. By comparison, the Pens though are paying half of a 4.7 million dollar contract next year. That's not a very good salary dump.
