Question about Jagr?

How long is he locked up for on the Rangers?

and do you still think he has a good 3-4 years of NHL hockey left in him?

2 and then a player option year, or it triggers automatically if he wins like the Hart award or some other things. I think he already said he was going to pick up that option or has already? I dont remember 100% the article was from a long time ago just when the season ended.

He said at the end of last season, he wants to stay and bring the cup back to NY.
I think 3-4 years is very likely.

Two guaranteed seasons-2006-07 and 2007-08

Team option-2008-09 which includes a $760,000 buyout.Jagr can guarantee the option through individual and/or team performances

He also mentioned in some article i read that his father said to him that at the age of 37 or 38 he'll be at his peak, because thats when his father felt the best. There was this other comment directed towards sather like "wait and see" from jagr suggesting he will still be in new york at that time.

Just to clarify, I believe Jagr said he could be at his strongest, not necessarily at his peak. If he is stronger and smarter, that may compensate for any decrease in speed, fine motor skills, flexibility, etc.

Yeah... to be honest with you, his speed is the only thing that has seriously declined, but by no means is he slow though.

Depends on if he stay's healthy and interested, two concerns that have not entirely been erased yet.

It seems like he truly wants to win here. He has said he wants to be THAT guy much like Mario was in Pittsburg, we'll see if that holds true through the rest of the season. Hopefully he can be part of bringing the cup to NY again.

I'ts safe to say he's here for a few more years, and wants to win big in NY. Look how he played last season, even at the end with his injury.

The thing is with Jagr, one never really knows.

Time will tell.

Unfortunatly a very magical and commited season just isn't enough to ignore past trends and reoccuring injuries (one of which started to rear its ugly head yet again at the end of the season).

Jaromir Jagr

I was watching one of the "10" games last night and visibly reminded what a fantastic player he is. Our Captain and leader, we want to win as badly as he does. The culture in the Rangers organization has changed, we are building a contending team for the long run and Jags is in his prime. He will only help and give us a chance to win the Cup.
Last season prior to home game one of the forgetable Devs series he told a local radio broadcaster that he was out for sure; I will never forget his image on the jumbotron coming out of the locker room. Yeah, we lost but the man is a Lionheart. He will play here as long as we want to win and he is contributing. Thank God for that, he is one of the Greats Go Rangers!!!

Jagr told NY Times he'll retire at end of contract.

Ranger fans...take this with a grain of salt. Jagr is notorious for changing his mind...BUT...he did mention that he is playing out his last NHL contract. He wants to finish out his playing days in Europe.

"Recently Jagr has told the New York Times that he will be retiring after the remaining two years on his New York Rangers contract is up. Jagr (now 34) will be 36 at the time he retires."

I found the article from The Times. Again...don't take everything too seriously because Jaromir is apt to change his mind.

I thought that as well, but like you said, we'll wait and see. Hopefully if we keep getting into the playoffs and go farther each time, he'll stick around for a little longer. Either way two more years is enough time to bring us a cup
