Given that Jagr is a player brought in for the "right now" in Boston, and that he's healthy, I don't understand how his age is relevant. He's reportedly in better shape than most players half his age. Jagr should return at least what was offered for Morrow.
You can argue that Dallas got more from Jagr than Pittsburgh did when he was traded in his prime, or Washington did when they traded him a few years later. Both clubs just wanted to rid themselves of his presence on the team. Jagr is a great player and one of my all time favorites but he is like empty calories. Somehow you are left wanting more from him.
