While Alfredsson could have stayed in Ottawa to make more than the $5.5 million he will be paid next season by the Red Wings to chase the Cup, Horton is leaving a championship-contending team to be well-compensated by a franchise in Columbus that is without a postseason win in its 12 seasons.

"This is a team on the rise with great players, and I'm looking forward to being a part of it," Horton said.

Jagr, a five-time scoring champion and former NHL MVP, was able to continue his career during the lockout-shortened season when the Dallas Stars gave him a $4.55 million, one-year contract last summer.

After Jagr had 14 goals and 26 points in 34 games for the Stars, showing he could still produce, Dallas dealt him to the Bruins.

He had nine points in 11 regular-season games with Boston and 10 assists in 22 postseason games. He didn't have a goal in the playoffs but made key plays that didn't show up on the score sheet.

Jagr teamed with Mario Lemieux to help lead the Penguins win a pair of Stanley Cup championships as a teenager in his first two NHL seasons in 1991 and 1992, and was the league MVP in 1999.
