I know people will say we should be getting younger, bla bla bla, but the numbers Jagr had this year, and the influence he can have on our younger players makes his presence on our team invaluable.

 

Very glad he's back, he certainly earned it, with his play.

Figured/hoped when he said he was playing in the WC that this was the case.  He's going to slow down sometime but last year was not that time.

I can't imagine him getting a dollar less than last year. I imagine $4.5-5 million.

 

Devils desperately needed Jagr, so this is only good news.

Before I even saw this quote, I was going to say that this is a great indication of Jagr's vote of confidence in DeBoer. We all know how badly he wanted playoff hockey, we all know the kind of numbers and play he put up this year. If I were Jagr, I would think at least ONE playoff team would want my services come July 1st, and yet, he re-signs with Devils 2 weeks after elimination in April. Very interesting.

Lavoie says it's a 5M contract with possibility of being 6M with bonuses.

Is Jagr making $5 million or $6 million going to change anything Lou does? I doubt it. Not worried about dollar amount on a 1-year contract.

This is going to be his last contract with us and probably in the NHL. I don't care too much as basically it's just moving Brodeurs money to him.

We do need to get younger and faster though at forward. We are clearly going to need to trade.

Why?  What evidence is there that Jagr is washed up?  He just scored 67 points and drove play to a ridiculous extent.  There's no reason why he can't play 2 or 3 more seasons if he stays even close to this level.  Now he might prefer playing in another league than playing the Teemu Selanne role of the last 2 years where he's on the 3rd line and PP, but he was one of the NHL's best forwards last year.
