Dont forget that when Jagr was traded to the craps, the Rags traded Kim Johnson to the Flyers fro ERIC LINDROS!!!
I'm assuming you know for a fact that the Rangers offered the same deal to the Penguins? Because if not, this post has no meaning.
The Pens wanted to rid salary, not add roster players. Was the trade bad? Certainly. CP should have done what he could to get draft picks rather than prospects. He didn't. Jagr and Lindros are two totally different players, that attacted different teams. The return for one has no significance on the return of the other.
If we start looking at other trades as a model, the Pens should have gotten the entire Caps' roster when comparing the deal to the one that sent Yashin to the Islanders. Included in that deal were Redden, Chara, and a draft pick that turned into Spezza.
