If Sergei Fedorov defected just a little earlier, do the Red Wings draft Jagr?

Sergei Fedorov defected to North America in July 1990, after the 1990 draft took place. If Fedorov had been able to defect a few months earlier, thereby giving Detroit two top centers, would the Red Wings still have taken another center in Keith Primeau third overall or would they have rolled the dice with Jagr? They had already struck gold with Fedorov so perhaps they would have been able to take a risk with drafting Jagr high in the first round?

Just the thought of that (prime Jagr on the 90s Wings) turns me into a Pavlov's dog.

There was an article recently reporting that Jagr told the top-drafting teams that he wouldn't be coming over any time soon. The only exception was Pittsburgh, because he wanted the chance to play with Mario.

If that's true, I doubt the Wings go for him.
