Can't we trick Jagr and Sundin into taking Selanne, Kariya like contracts.

Not sure how this can be viewed as a positive for those who want Jagr to return. Now that Hossa went to the Wings, The Oilers and Pens can throw their Hossa money at Jagr, in a shorter term deal. We need to hope that Jagr only wanting to play in NY is accurate because I suddenly see a few more teams in the Jagr sweepstakes now.

Starting to get a feeling that Christian Huselius might end up being a Ranger.

Sather needs to get both Sundin & Jagr on a conference call and say "just look at Detroit. the only way anybody takes them down is if you two come here at a discount, otherwise, enjoy your $20million contracts from Western Canadian teams and watching Detroit lift another cup in June."

We need a winger. Bring back Jagr, sign Naslund or Huselius. Those are like the only options left. We don't need Sundin at all.

Sign Jagr for 1 year, 6.5 million + bonuses.

Sign Huselius for 3 years, about 4 million per.

That will take us right up to the cap. Waive Backman for some wiggle room.

Now, we finally have a team.

Naslund is going to be cheap unlike Huselias

I think they only have room for Jagr with bonuses the key and a Satan type contract

Let the Forward Signing beging

Husellius , Miettenen, Avery, Demitra...........they are all going soon

I'll take Demitra and Husellius. Not the best of players.

Granted, I haven't seen him play more than maybe 1 game a year, but I'm thinking we may differ on our definitions of "crap".

If Huselius can provide the same production at a lower price, why shouldn't we sign him?

I'm just happy that he didn't sign with us. I don't really see this having much influence upon Jagr.

The reported 7yrs/$50m deal was bogus. The actual deal, as confirmed by Pens management, was 5yrs/$35m. There were rumors -- but only rumors -- that Pittsburgh increased their offer to 7yrs/$52m last night.

The Rangers had better be careful or they could lose Jagr to Pittsburgh.

Honestly, good for Marian Hossa.

Its nice to see that a guy who could really cash in actually takes a discount to be on a winning team.

Hope Jagr is resigned by the end of the day.

extremely streaky, bad defensively, played with iginla(which equals 20 extra points), and he will be paid according to his numbers, which will be 4-5 million...BIG PASS

Having taken a number of shots at Marian Hossa--I have to give him credit--he leaves a lot of money on the table to take a shot at a championship. Good for him.

Wow, Detroit is looking scary good for next year.

Someone wrote that teams usually don't win back-to-back. But teams usually lose free agents whom they rented at the trading deadline (or just regular FAs who are overpaid by other teams because they looked good on a Cup-winning team).

In this case, Detroit won the Cup and then got an All Star wing as a free addition to the team.

They are now better, significantly better, than they were last year.

I guess Hossa must've been thinking, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em".
