He would be wise to resign in NJ.. We have the easiest travel in the NHL, he's playing on a top line and gelling with Zajac (maybe Ruutu now), and we play a style that is suitable for his speed.. He'd be far less effective in some of the run-and-gun style teams in the East.. We play a slower possession game that fits his skill set well.. I can definitely see him coming back, especially if we do well in FA (not that I think he is actively trying to win a Cup)
Jagr really wants to re-sign in NJ.

At this point, resigning him would seem to be a no-brainer. If we're going on a one year deal, I have no problem throwing him 5 for next season. We would seriously be looking at giving up a top 3-5 pick this year if it weren't for him (and the other aging Czechs).
