Scott Burnside of ESPN believes that New York Rangers forward Jaromir Jagr would be better off on another team. Burnside states that the Rangers could use Jagr to get a top defenseman back, or get some young prospects or draft picks, and suggests defensemen Joni Pitkanen, Rob Blake, John-Michael Liles, Dan Boyle and Bryan McCabe might "enjoy a change of scenery." There's also been rumours that the Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens could be in the running for the Czech winger.
Burnside also notes that Rangers goaltending prospect Al Montoya could be traded as well. He lists the Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings and Detroit Red Wings as teams that could be interested. Source
