He's definitely hit his bonuses this season - I'm just wondering if they count against the cap this season or if they were deferred (I vaguely recall something about the bonuses not counting against the cap until next year).



$2M of the cap hit from the games played bonus is deferred to next year. So his cap hit is $2M now and $2M next year.

Bonuses count this year, unless they send the Devils over the cap. If bonuses send the Devils over the cap then the excess is applied to next season.

$2M of the cap hit from the games played bonus is deferred to next year. So his cap hit is $2M now and $2M next year.

My cursory reading of capgeek seems to say the Devils can accept Jagr and Zid's $3 million in bonuses for this season's cap.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

This is where people lose it when a player leaves for free agency. Would Jagr like to come back to NJ? Sure. He's open to it. He was asked a question and it's hard not to say otherwise. But I bet he would like to.

 

But very few players would say otherwise when asked about coming back to the team they are currently playing for. A lot of really opportunities could present themselves to him once the season ends, however.

Yes $2 million for 2 years. So if they brought him back on the same deal, $4 million next year. Still your top scorer and a relative bargain assuming he stays healthy, which he seems to do.

Why does every thread on this board turn into a discussion about Brodeur?


Because Marty shot off his mouth.

Bullsh!t.  Don't go comparing the two.  Brodeur put over 20 years of work in this organization, he has earned the right to say whatever he wants.  Jagr is trying to look good because he wants to get another contract.  Jagr looks so great now because he's not following the money and needs a job after this year.  I'm just as happy as you are that Jagr likes it here and as long as he continues playing as he has, he's earned his 2nd year if Lou still wants him. 

 

 

If Lou still "wants" him?

 

I think it's clear that Lou NEEDS him.

 

Without Jagr this season, it would be EXTREMELY ugly.


Even if Jagr only puts in 40 points next year, I'll take him back.  Love Jagr.

 

 

Oh yes

 

Nice pic, btw...lol


Jagr has 55 points in 65 games and he is a +17. We'd be god awful if not for him.

 

YES


This is where people lose it when a player leaves for free agency. Would Jagr like to come back to NJ? Sure. He's open to it. He was asked a question and it's hard not to say otherwise. But I bet he would like to.

 

But very few players would say otherwise when asked about coming back to the team they are currently playing for. A lot of really opportunities could present themselves to him once the season ends, however.

 

 

If he leaves for a little more money, and the Devils tried to resign him....I will be livid

I really don't think Jagr will get a ton of offers for the same reason he didn't get that many this year - he still wants to play for a winner but he's not really definitely going to be good enough to play in a 'winner's top 6.  I'd hope Lou would offer him the same deal he got this year with a $1M raise in base salary.  So it's $3M with a $500k bonus for every 10 games he plays up to 40 games.

 

NJ will pay out the bonuses to Jagr and Zidlicky this year, thankfully.

So that explains why he is being discussed in a thread about Jagr wanting to re sign in NJ? Makes total sense.

Funny how much he loves it here.  I remember hearing his name in trade rumors with the Devils in either '98 or '99...I forget which year...not like things went badly because it never happened, but there's definitely a little "what if"...seems like Jagr is much easier-going and generally happier now than he was then.  He'll always remind me of the rock star who once played to sold-out stadiums, didn't really love it, and is having a much better time playing in small clubs than he ever did when he was on top.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I don't think Jagr was in a good place for a while...especially during his time in Washington. I don't think he ever married...doesn't have kids and seemed to get away from hockey by gambling millions away and wasn't paying his taxes.

 

He's definitely in that better place now. I'm not sure if the late night workout sessions have always took place or now are used as part of a new found focus on hockey. As legendary as they are, these things can't be done when you have a wife and kids.

 

When Jagr says he'll keep playing...because "what else am I going to do"....he means it.

Yeah Jags isn't settling down and having a family until he's done with hockey, if he does at all. That much appears clear lol.

Jagr is a paid mercenary at this point. Who ever will potentially pay him the most he'll go there. Doesn't matter where or how much of a preseason contender they are and there is nothing wrong with that

He prefers playing in the East, maybe for a team that won't be getting an outdoor game. No one wants to hear another half dozen interviews of him bitching about playing in the cold.

I hope he sticks around at least to be a role model to some of the younger guys. His dedication to the game is ridiculous.

It was never a secret that Jagr was not happy in the NHL in the early part of his career. This is actually the first time I have ever seen him really seem happy and he is still pretty cagey about what he's feeling.
