One of my favorites to ever play the game for sure. I hated his guts when I was 10, though. All I heard from Caps fans around here was how big of a money grubber he was. To think I still hear that from people. I'm sure he loves the money, but he's in it for the experience moreso than the money or the fame I think.
It's not just Caps fans who believe that, basically anybody whose every been around the game of hockey & Jagr has said that the guy always goes to the highest bidder.

He's also a pretty big gambler so he has reasons for doing so.
