NEW YORK (Ticker) - Jaromir Jagr, his price tag and his talent may be on their way to New York.

TSN in Canada reported late Friday afternoon that the Washington Capitals' superstar will be sent to the New York Rangers for fellow right wing Anson Carter, pending league approval.

Jagr makes $11 million this season, but the Capitals have the second-worst record in the NHL (14-27-5-2). Jagr also has been criticized for his inconsistency and ambivalence for the game.


According to TSN, the Capitals will pick up about $20 million of the $44 million remaining on the seven-year, $77 million deal he signed after being acquired from Pittsburgh prior to the 2001-02 season.

Jagr has agreed to defer $1 million a year for the balance of the contract, TSN added.

The trade between the deep-pocketed Rangers and Capitals has been in the works since the summer. The sticking point appeared to be how much of Jagr's contract would be picked up.

Jagr would become the latest high-priced player acquired by general manager Glen Sather and the desperate Rangers, who have the highest payroll in the NHL but haven't made the playoffs since 1997.

In Sather's three-year reign, the Rangers have acquired or signed Pavel Bure, Bobby Holik, Alexei Kovalev, Greg de Vries, Darius Kasparaitis, Vladimir Malakhov, Mike Dunham, Eric Lindros, Carter and Tom Poti, each of whom make between $2.8 million and $10 million this season.

Bure collects $10 million this season but hasn't played a game due to a career-threatening knee injury, Holik pockets $8.85 million as a checking center and Kovalev gets $6.6 million but is one of the biggest disappointments in the NHL.

Jagr, who turns 32 next month, still is one of the most skilled players in the world. Although his production is down from his days in Pittsburgh, he was named to this year's Eastern Conference All-Star team.

A native of the Czech Republic, Jagr has 16 goals, 29 assists and a minus-4 rating - possibly his first minus since his rookie season of 1990-91 - in 46 games this season on a bad team.

Jagr has won five NHL scoring titles. And despite arguments that he benefited from Mario Lemieux's presence at center, the Penguins' Hall of Famer played a total of 24 games with Jagr during his Art Ross Trophy-winning years.

In 996 NHL games, Jagr has 522 goals and 758 assists with a plus-208 rating. He had 62 goals and 87 assists for a career-best 149 points in 1995-96 and added seasons of 127, 121 and 102 points.

Carter has been a major disappointment since being acquired from Edmonton last season. He has only 10 goals and seven assists with a minus-12 rating in 43 games this season.

Originally a member of the Capitals, Carter collects $2.8 million this season, after which he becomes a free agent. A four-time 20-goal scorer, Carter already has played for four teams in eight NHL seasons.

The Rangers did acquire veteran defenseman Jamie Pushor from Columbus for an eighth-round draft pick Friday as they try to help a blue line decimated by injuries.

With Kasparaitis and de Vries sidelined long term, the Rangers had to look elsewhere for some defensive support. Poti also has been sidelined with a bad back, although he might play Saturday in Ottawa.

Pushor, 30, has 13 goals and 44 assists in 510 NHL games with Pittsburgh, Columbus, Dallas, Anaheim and Detroit. He was a member of the Red Wings' 1997 Stanley Cup championship team.

Sather is hoping the additions help a team that is 10th in the Eastern Conference, two points out of eighth place. The Rangers have lost three straight games.

No. But the next CBA agreement should have a new cap around $35-45 million.

You watch baseball and think it's a cool sport. You're one to talk about lousy sports.

I would prefer not having a salary cap and so would many of the players, but for owners of teams like Columbus and Carolina, a cap is the only way to compete with teams like Detroit and Colorado. That's one of the threatening reasons why there will be a lock out next year.

9-1! Good lord, 9-1.

The Sens throttled the Rangers in their first game with Jagr.

9-1!! That is ridiculous.

like a famous writer once said (i can't remember his name),
"the people who think baseball is a dull sport, are people with dull minds." this applies so well here.

He was a team cancer, the team was much better before we got him.
