When Jagr plays the way he wants to play he's one of the best in the world. But they were getting older. This is true. But Jagr is still much better than anyone on the Rangers and I wouldn't exactly say Gomez / Drury are players on the rise like Kane, Getzlaf, etc; but players who already peaked out and are just great 2nd line players in their prime but not true 1st line players. Jagr is much better than them.

And Jagr giving 70% in Russia. Can you blame the guy? He saw a friend of his die next to him on the bench. I know I'd lose a lot of interest in hockey if I saw that. So, don't be quick to judge the guy. I'd imagine it would be a difficult task to see your friend die and a month later get back to playing competitive hockey. The whole team has struggled and declined off since his death.
they played in the same system when jagr scored 54 goals. Give me a break. And he was halfassing it before Cherapanov died. He was halfassing it before he went to Russia. And I don't know if you just decided to not read most of my post or what but there's nothing about Jagr not being better than anyone on this current team, that doesn't change the fact that he couldnt be signed to a ludicrous or long term contract. As I said earlier, the bigger mistake was not replacing him with talent versus letting him go.

You guys need to get real about Redden and Gomez realistically going to the AHL. They don't play up to their contracts but they are NHL talent and the Rangers aren't going to put them in the minors. Gomez would probably get claimed on waivers even if his contract is what it is and I don't know what to say regarding Redden other than he's not going to get just sent to Hartford to rot.

RangerFan10, you act like Gomez getting claimed on waivers is a bad thing...
