Yup, just like JD said yesterday on WFAN, no way the IIHF was going to allow Jagr to play in Russia while under contract with a NHL team.

Russia in running for Jagr

By LANCE HORNBY -- Toronto Sun

When the salary cap became a reality, the initial fear was young National Hockey Leaguers would run to Europe.

But Jaromir Jagr, who was due to be the highest-paid NHLer last season at $11 million US before losing 24% of that in the rollback and another $500,000 that exceeded the individual cap, could lead the charge. The New York Rangers' top gun could end up back with the Avangard Omsk team in Russia.

The club -- which is owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, who also owns English soccer club Chelsea -- shelled out millions for Jagr to play half a season in 2004-05. The Rangers were either going to keep Jagr or buy him out.

"It's complicated," Jagr told the Czech daily Mlada Fronta Dnes. "I want to hear the opinions of both clubs. It should be solved within three weeks."

Jagr insisted money was not going to influence his decision.

Awards:
There were reports out of Russia that Jagr had returned to his lockout team, Avangard Omsk of the Russian Super League, for workouts and the suggestion was made that he might just remain there. However, he's under contract with the Rangers and an NHL contract, at least this season, trumps anything around the world.

I hope his body and heart are in NY though. I don't want him here if he is just going through the motions.

Here's something more definitive courtesy of our beloved GM...

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/artic...727_173519_724

Through team spokesman John Rosasco, Glen Sather said, "Jaromir is under contract and we fully expect him to be in New York playing for the Rangers this year".

he should be back... it would be too complicated for him to get out. Negotiating a transfer fee would be extremely complicated. He'll probably stay especially since the rangers because I doubt the Rangers will sell if they truly meant it when they said (according to rodents website) that they want to build around him and make him captain.

As fans, do things like this make you want to trade Jager dispite the fact that he's a great player?

Agree and then to see him with the C on him would be worse.

You are way off base here.



Rodent didn't say "There is no question Jager would be Captain". Try reading this excerpt from today's column regarding the statements from Jager camp:

Quote:
Here are the salient points:

• I understand that my only chance to play with Omsk is if my lawyers determine that (under international law) my contract with New York is invalid because it is now different than when I originally signed.

• I do like playing in New York. Nowhere else in America have I liked it so much. There is nothing [in Omsk] that I would be missing in Manhattan.

• I feel sure that I will never sign another NHL contract. I will return to Omsk sooner or later.

• The reason why Omsk is that I can return home [to Kladno] whenever there's a break. This I cannot do in North America. For instance, if I played with Avangard, I could return home for Christmas to be with family and friends. The schedule is much longer in the NHL, too. So even if I made less money, I would prefer to play in the RSL. The quality of life is worth it.

There were no questions about Jagr wearing the "C".

-off rodent's site

The Rangers informed the Jagr camp that they have no intention of buying out the All-World winger. An unattributed quote translates as follows:

• Jarda is our top priority.
• We plan to build NYR around him.
• We hope he would be captain

Yeah. He knows he has a contract. So why all this? The temptation would be to
trade him for too little.

It was a disaster when he was made captain in Pittsburgh, with the hope that wearing the "C" would accelerate his maturity. It didn't work.
