Jagr Signs 1 Year Deal With Devils

365 posts in this topic

I think we are done for now. Don't see us adding Brunner.

We need Brunner. That needs to get done.

1 year $3.5 million. Ill take that. Now to get a Jagr jersey

 

Is this accurate?  That sounds fair.

I hope you are right.   But this a band-aid and not a good long term strategy in building a winner.

 

It is a nice addition for a last push for Marty

 

 

I think it can help.  It's not like this was Lou's only offseason move.  He addressed the goaltending situation for the long term future, and added a couple of other good forwards in Clowe and Ryder.   Add the Olesz move and a few of the kids that will make the big club out of camp...I am excited

I don't think there's any money left for Brunner at this point since Henrique isn't announced yet.  How much do we have remaining at this point, 3m?

 

Seems to me that to sign a Brunner, you'd need to jettison another D like Sal/Volch, but as has been said countless times on this board, those are not attractive options to other teams, so pipe dream.

At this stage of his career, can we still go with the "Mario Jr" anagram on his first name?

 

Or do we have to downgrade it to something like "Mr Irajo"?

NJ has 10 million in cap space right now, without including Jagr.  So there is room for Henrique, Jagr, and another good player, most likely.

According to Capgeek, we have $10,129,166 left. If Jagr got $3.5, that's $6,629,166 left. Say Henrique signs for $2-2.5M, we really have around $4,129,166-4,629,166. Plenty to sign one more guy. Not sure if it happens though. Where would another wing fit in the lineup?

This is his seventh team. When he retirees, who retirees his number?

 

If I had to guess, I'd say Pittsburgh.

OFC this is a band aid and it doesn't impact long term strategy since it is only 1 year.  Unless Lou can rob another team, the only thing he can do is band-aids at the moment. 

 

With limited ice time other than PP, we'll see what Jagr can give us.  Expectations should not be high.

We signed him just so Brodeur is no longer the oldest guy on the team...

I don't think the Devils will be signing Brunner.  I think they will be moving a defenseman and one of the kids will play the point, either on the 1st or 2nd PP unit.

At worst he's a half year contract, at best he becomes a PP weapon for us. I see it as a positive.

Devils GM Lou Lamoriello on Jaromir Jagr report: "It's all rumors right now. If we have anything to report, we'll do that."

LMAO watch Lou void the contract before it's even signed.

 

Lou:  Jagr? Noooooo...  *trollface*
