Jagr On Broadway and Other Trade Recaps

Jaromir Jagr finally got his wish as he was traded to a major market franchise (just about the only franchise that could afford his 10 million a year salary). The New York Rangers, fearing missing the playoffs again this year hope that they can spark a path to the post season. Jagr could be the first in a long line of players that leave the Capitals as reported by TSN's Sportscenter. Anson Carter now finds himself on the Capitals.

The Rangers have also added journeyman defenceman Jamie Pushor from the Columbus Blue Jackets. This is Pushor's 3rd team this season after spending time with the Maple Leafs and Blue Jackets this year. He also was a stopgap in the defense as a member of the Penguins last season.

In other moves around the league, Charlie Stephens of the Avalanche goes to Ottawa for veteran forward and career AHLer Dennis Bonvie.
