I don't think it's confirmed yet, but many radio stations are reporting that the deal is close to being sealed.

Apparently it looks like Jagr for Nedved, Barnaby, and Lundmark.

......


there goes his career right down the drain. :-\ :|

Nope. Jagr was(is) my favorite player in the NHL and he was the reason I started watching hockey and liking the Pens back in the early 90's. Too bad the Pens couldn't get him back. Lemuiex and Jagr together again. :y:

Jagr should do better in New York anyways he'll have better linemates. I haven't heard anything about it yet though.. Isn't this the same rumor from last summer though same guys are involved.

That's Jagr

He was finished as soon as he cut his hair. Although he did do well with the Pens for a while with short hair.

Lindros was one hell of a tough bastard in junior. Don't underestimate his fighting skills.

Sather is rumoured to be on his way out in New York, so this trade isn't as close as done as speculated.

I heard an interview with a Rangers admin. a few months ago, and it put it into perspective. NY is a place where they not only battle for position, but attention. NY is literally a place where you can have a contender and be silent. With the coaching moves with the Nicks and Giants, and the off-season moves by the Yankees, the Rangers need to do something to keep on the back pages and in people's minds. Your talking about millions in revenue being involved. NY will always make the big (unreasonable) moves as long as the media market in NY remains so cut-throat.

Jagr set to go to Rangers (http://tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?ID=69326&hubName=nhl)
TSN.ca Staff

1/23/2004

TSN has learned that the Washington Capitals have worked out a deal to trade All-Star forward Jaromir Jagr to the New York Rangers in exchange for forward Anson Carter, pending league approval by a trade call.

TSN has also learned the Capitals are picking up approximately $20 million of the remaining $44 million on the contract after this season. Sources have told TSN Jagr has agreed to defer $1 million a year for the balance of the contract. That money is deferred with interest and guaranteed.

Before the restructuring of his contract, Jagr was scheduled to earn $11 million a year in each of the next four seasons beyond this one. There is a club option for a fifth year, also at $11 million, but there ways the fifth year could become guaranteed to Jagr in the event of the following:

-if he scores 40 goals or 90 points and his team wins the first round of the playoffs in the final year of the contract.

-if he scores 80 goals or 180 points in the final two years of the contract and his team wins two rounds of the playoffs.

-if he wins a major award in the final three seasons of the deal or his team wins two Stanley Cups in that time.

The deal between the Caps and Rangers was effectively agreed to yesterday, sources said, but the re-structuring of the contract had to be negotiated this morning between the Rangers and Jagr's agent.

Now Jagr will make $10 million a year for the balance of the contract with $1 million per year deferred with interest. Of that $10 million per year, the Caps are picking up about half for the four year period.

When the Capitals and the Rangers broached the subject in late November, Washington was believed to be willing to assume about $20 million of Jagr's contract.

A six-time first team All-Star, Jagr, 31, is second on the Capitals in scoring this season with 16 goals and 29 assists for 45 points in 45 games.

Carter, who led Canada to a gold medal at the IIHF World Hockey Championship last spring, returns to the team where he made his NHL debut. Carter played 19 games with the Capitals in 1996-97 after being traded from the Colorado Avalanche.

In eight NHL seasons with the Rangers, Capitals, Edmonton Oilers and Boston Bruins, the 29-year old has 153 goals and 174 assists. He has 10 goals and seven assists in 45 games with the Rangers this season.

Jagr has not provided the payoff expected when the Capitals made him the highest paid player in the league. The team failed the reach the playoffs in his first season and was eliminated in the first round by Tampa Bay last year. Attendance has sagged for a franchise that was already losing some $20 million per year.

Jagr has fought sporadic slumps and injuries to average about one point per game with the Capitals, but those numbers are well down from his superstar years with the Penguins.

More to follow.

How does the Carter for Jagr trade not make sense?

Caps are set to dump about 8 mil in salary, and the Rangers get Jagr.

It make perfect sense.

It makes sense, but the Caps could get atleast a bit more than just Carter for Jagr straight up (i.e. a draft pick, etc.).

I'll re-iterate, I'm just glad that Jagr is NOT going to Detroit.

If the Rangers make the playoffs (and I'm assuming if they do, they'll be one of the bottom teams), they could be an EXTREME dark horse team.

I wonder if they'll make a serious pitch for Curtis Joesph (or Dominik Hasek?) somewhere down the road.

01-23-2004, 07:13 PM
Yeah that's why it makes so little sense.

See, if the Caps dumped Jagr and got his salary off their hands, I'd agree that it was a smart move.

But the thing is, they're still paying him $20 million, so it's just retarded all over

Carter will probably do pretty good with the Caps.

I don't really think Jagr was worth much more than they got. He hasnt really been a superstar since leaving the Pens.
