Disregarding Shanny's feelings at this point (it is his decision after all), let's imagine that he comes back, being a classy individual that he is and repaying us, the fans, with another season in the Ranger blue. What do we do with current player wearing "C"? I haven't been able to watch games this season, so I can't say whether Jagr is being Jagr of the Capitals or he is just last season's version but with bummed shoulder. In other words, is Jagr pouting? Did he lose heart or is his left shoulder still bugging him?

Shanny's benefits are obvious - wicked shot and plenty of them, dirty work around the crease, in the corners, along the boards, defensive responsibilty and most importantly - leadership and everything that this word encompasses. How about Jagr and Shanny on the same team and having to lead the Rangers through actual rebuild (I pray to God for it)? Past history shows that Jagr doesn't like to be on rebuilding teams, although with age he might've changed.
