I personally wonder if Jagr would sign at this point, and I also wonder if the Stars would commit to that. He has been great so far, and his influence in the room is worth the $4.55 million contract alone. He is detailed, engaged, experienced, smart...really just a joy to be around. But I think he also wants to be on a team that can win in the playoffs, and I'm not sure this is that team yet. This is a transition season for the Stars, and GM Joe and the powers that be would like the playoffs to be a part of the process in transitioning forward. While guys like Brenden Dillon and Cody Eakin need that experience to be better in the future, guys like Jamie Benn and Kari Lehtonen need it too.

Jagr is def not going to be here for another year, but I really do like that his experience will have been here for at least a little while. Some of it will rub off... already has.

Yeah, he's good for this year, but that's it I think... I will say that he has surprised me. I thought it was mostly a publicity stunt to attract more fans, and at the least bring some veteran presence and know how... Didn't think he would be as consistent on the score sheet as he has been
