If ever two players could benefit from a change of scenery, it's Jaromir Jagr and Eric Lindros.

Then again, neither has benefited much from their last moves. In fact, both players have fallen from superstardom to enigmatic question marks since 2001 when Jagr was traded from Pittsburgh to Washington and Lindros was dealt by Philadelphia to the New York Rangers.

A Jagr-for-Lindros deal, which is reportedly being discussed by the Rangers and Capitals, is still a long way from being worked out because of contract issues. But each team would like to free itself of its respective underachiever.
