any deal for jagr that doesn't include washington's 1st rounder coming back is an AWFUL deal...

i don't care what players are included in that deal, jagr's contract will be absolutely devastating under the new cba (unless of course you want to argue that if will prevent the rangers from signing any more ufas for the next 7 years, which could be a good thing)...

what happens if the league gets there way and there is a hard cap?? we'd be stuck with jagr & a bunch of rookies/minor leagues cause we can't add anymore that might be an unlikely scenario, but IMO you need to prepare yourself for the worse and then if things turn out better you are ahead of the game. you don't hope things work out the way you want cause that increases the odds of you getting screwed...

so if you are going to screw yourself by adding his salary, you better get some quality young players that can fill spots for cheap
