Jagr Signs 1 Year Deal With Devils

365 posts in this topic

Really excited to see him in a Devils jersey for his last year.. I was never a big fan of young Jagr but have grown to really respect the hell out of him from his time (and roles) in Philly and Boston..

Why am I just not that excited about Jagr being on this team? I respect him and all, but it just feels so out of place and forced for some reason.

Because usually players leave NJ to play for our biggest rivals, not the other way around....even though there was a couple buffer teams between it.

Jagr is a legend, he's one of the best to ever play the game. It's great that there's a pretty big chance he finishes his career with New Jersey.

 

Think of the forwards on the Devils who have yet to show what they've got. Henrique, Josefson, Loktionov, Olesz, and possibly Tedenby (if he gets much NHL time, which I expect he will) could all learn a lot from him. 

 

Plus he's a great locker room guy.

 

I don't find this forced at all. You may think that a team would get Jagr just for the sake of having such a great player in its history. But it's clear that Lou doesn't think very much of age, and only signed him to help the team.

jagr is definently going to help this team where it needs help even though he is Jurassic hopefully he will stay healthy the pp is going to benefit from him being on it. ... then again last years power play had no where to go but up it couldnt really get much worse.

If I had a nickel for every time a player was supposed to help our middling PP....

I mean, this isn't our first time in this rodeo - Igor Larionov played his last game in the NHL as a Devil.  Still, while Larionov was an excellent player in his day, he was used in 3rd line minutes by Detroit his last 2 years there.  Jagr played 18 minutes a game last year both in the regular season and the playoffs.  I think he's still going to be effective.  I mean, if he's not, the Devils are in trouble.

Lou about Jagr and his willing to train at night in Prudential : 

 

“I’m sure he’ll have the ice,” Lamoriello said. “I don’t know if he’ll have the keys.” -

Even better is: "We were worried about that big rear end of his wherever it was standing and that long stick and how he could thread the needle." - LL
