The Washington Capitals still would be on the hook for approximately $4 million for extra years that Jagr might trigger by meeting spelled-out performance thresholds. So if he were to win an MVP or a scoring title or a playoffs MVP and trigger an extension through 2008-09 of the seven-year deal he signed with the Caps in 2001, Jagr indeed would be owed another $8.36 million, but only about half of that would be paid by the Rangers and only that much would count against their team cap.

In other words, Jagr wouldn’t be saddling the Rangers in 2008-09 with a cap-killing contract by triggering that clause, he’d be giving the Rangers another year of his services at a bargain rate.

Presuming, of course, that he still wants to play and still is playing at a high level by then
