Jagr Signs 1 Year Deal With Devils

365 posts in this topic

Who would have thought that 15 years later they'd still be playing........ and together......

I was thinking how stupid the website will look with Marty and Jagr as our marquee players

Interesting. one of my first hockey memories comes from the '95 series playoff series vs the penguins when a large angry Devils fan continuously screamed "HIIIIT THAAAATT JJAAAAGGGRR". It'll be weird cheering for him now.

Wait a sec -- this isn't even official?  ye gads -- I despair of all things Devils ... except Dave Barr.  Maybe I'll even become keeper of Dave Barr's enthusiasm.

DAMNIT KOVALCHUK WE COULD HAVE NATIONALIZED OUR LINES. You ruined everything!

Olesz - Elias - Jagr

Zubrus - Loktionov - Kovalchuk.

Clowe - Henrique - Ryder

Gionta - Zajac - Carter

Zajac is Canadian and Zubrus is from Lithuania, but ya, close.

Would rather have had Brunner for three years,

 

I expect Jagr's groin and back issues to surface around Mid-March.

We have a pretty good crop of forwards for this season. Henrique and JJ will have bounce back years. Once we sign Brunner, we will be contending for a division title.

I would like both so one to go plus Henrique.

Your 2013-2014 starting lineup:

 

Elias-Zubrus-Jagr

Zidlicky-Salvador

Brodeur

 

No way Zubrus starts out on the first line

Almost 230 years of life experience in one line!

They may not be able to sustain a high level of play over the course of a season but everyone will be damned to think a Jagr/Elias combo won't wreak havoc on some level.

That's a ton of hockey sense and instinct right there, hope it can actually play out the way I picture it could.

This is pretty cool. Never would've thought when I was a kid that I would one day see Jagr in a Devils jersey. Oh, and I love this move too since it will help the offense out a lot.

I don't remember them playing very well during the world cup or the olympics in year's past.   On paper it sounds good, but hockey is not played on paper.    I am hoping that Patty can breath some life into him.

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.

Who do you expect they'll be able to ship out and how?

UH OH! Maybe deal isn't done!

 

 

 

  1. @jcamps30 @billmeltzer @zdenek_janda Idk about everyone else, but I'm waiting on Lou. JJ already leaked enough already.

     
  2. @MichelleKenneth @jcamps30 @zdenek_janda C'mon... Lou LOVES it when info leaks out, especially in advance of team being ready to announce ;)

     
  3. @billmeltzer @jcamps30 @zdenek_janda Yeah...I remember NJD's reaction after they figured out Kovy had been talking to me.

     
  4. @MichelleKenneth @billmeltzer @jcamps30 Jagr made absolutely no comments during the last days...So the contract could be saved:)

     
  5. @zdenek_janda maybe not after what I just found out.

OK except for one of them, I have no idea who the rest of those people are.  Why should we listen to them then?

Yeah, lot of nothing here.  I do wish that players would actually, you know, get signed and there wouldn't have to be this will-they-or-won't-they teeter-tottering.

Zdenek is the one who broke the news in the first place and Michelle is scary good in her reporting. IDK which one you don't know. If you read Michelle's article on Kovy after he left and how much he confided in her, you'd believe every thing she says. Also she's just got that creepy quality to her in the fact she predicts a ton of stuff before it happens.

God I fvcking hate twitter.

 

I'm sure if you should all know that I don't just post BS twitter sh!t from just anyone. Ok, I did a long time ago from Insiderrrrrrrrr, but still. If I didn't trust the sorce I wouldn't post it here. I'm not sure if Michelle is kidding with her last comment or not, she didn't get back to a couple of us on there when we asked her.
