You know what i just realized? Back when Jagr left for the KHL, he said he would only play for the Rangers in the NHL or go to the KHL team that he promised to play for.
The Rangers decided to sign horrible horrible deals with Gomez, Redden and Drury. Do you remember those terrible deals? Well they prevented Jagr from signing a big deal. Look at where those three players are now...
Gomez traded and bought out of his horrible contract.
Drury was bought out of the last year of his horrible contract.
Redden was bought out..
Imagine if the Rangers would have believed in Jagr and signed him to a great deal instead of those players? What were the Rangers thinking?!? I mean Jagr breaks a record for the franchise in his first year, and slows down the following years, but he was obviously injured. Anyways those signings have always bothered me and because of those i really think we got robbed at seeing Jagr at #2 all time in points since he promised the KHL team he would play for them if he didn't sign with the Rangers.
