I thought I'd read that somewhere, and if it is indeed the case, then Jagr's contract is virtually untradeable in the salary cap world unless the Rangers take back some lousy contracts themselves. But depending on what youth and/or picks also comes back in a trade, it could be worth it.

Might all be in vain though, since Jagr said if he's not playing for the Rangers, he'd be in Europe...
I remember reading something similar also, so I think you correct in saying that if Jagr gets traded Washington is off the hook for their half of the contract.
