Is this before or after Sather cleared 2 million in cap space?

Not really low-balling, it's what we can afford, he'll get bonuses as well.

Even that I'm reluctant to give him. We need to move into a new direction.

Looks like we're pursuing Pavol Demitra as an alternative?

Won't be such a bad idea if Jagr decides to bolt

THANK YOU! Someone who see's it the right way. We haven't won anything with Jagr. TIME TO MOVE ON PEOPLE. He doesn't show up for 3/4 of the season and demands a 7 mill contract?.. **** that. Go to Omsk or wherever he wants to go. I'm excited in seeing youth play and develop through learning experience. Similar to a Montreal team. Now lets get Demitra

Sather is on a conference call right now, hopefully some Jagr news will come out of it.

I wouldn't look to much into this. The 4 mill might just be the base salary. It could be structured like Shanny's last year where he gets a 3 mill bonus for putting his pants on.

I'm not sure I'd believe that, since it's posted on a website dedicated to a team that is also trying to land Jagr. Sather was rumored as offering 6 mil yesterday and we can still afford that. I see no reason Sather would disrespect Jagr like that.

I love Jags, but after making all these moves, I don't know how I'd feel about making Jagr the focus yet again.

I'd almost prefer to take a step back next year and move on from the Jagr era. Sign Demitra, Huselius, or Naslund.

A Pittsburgh-based rumor blog? Yeah that's probably accurate

Seems like everyone is once again lost. Bonuses, this season, count against the cap, this season. So $4 Million base with $3 Million Bonus is still $7 Million Cap hit.

if you look at all of the other rumors they had posted before the deals happened...they've been pretty spot on.

As of right now that is true. But if the union declines to terminate the CBA next year, the bonuses can once again be deferred. It all comes down to when the union makes the call... which I believe has to happen some time in May the latest but it can happen sooner. Maybe Sather gambles that the PA will extend the CBA and bonuses will be deferred. But as I said timing is a factor.

And from what I've been reading the PA is likely to re-up the deal, since it's led to unprecedented signings.

You dont want Jagr but yet you want Demitra would is demanding around 5M is nothing even close to Jagr.

I don't know one way or another whether the information in that blog is legitimate, but I will say this:

We heard yesterday that Jagr was waiting (and comparing himself in some light) to Hossa. Well, perhaps this new low offer is a reaction to Hossa signing his one-year deal for alot less money than most probably anticipated.

May be a little bit sarcastic, but Sather used a similar ploy with Avery, when Avery compared his worth to Chris Kelly, who signed for 2.215/year shortly thereafter. Whether it works now as well as it did then, who knows.

JJ have stated that he wanted to wait before Hossa signed -- according to Slats.

But I am not so sure it was to wait and see what numbers Hossa got, cause thats not rocket science. Hossa would get something like 7-8m per.

Maybe JJ wanted to see where Hossa signed, like he demanded that Slats went out and got Hossa or something.

i think it's pretty clear Sather is essentially telling Jags to go to Russia. I really hate losing Jagr, he was a great Ranger. but ultimately a few years down the road this might be viewed as a smart thing to do. it's clear this organization is going in a different direction and it might be the smart thing in the long run...
