agreed that he'd be useful on the PP and agreed that he'd not be terribly helpful come playoff time.  i was surprised when jags initially came back to the nhl with phili and got as much money as he did.  difficult for me to think he'd take a 2m+ paycut, but hey, i also don't know the market and what the collective GM consciousness is at the moment on this guy.  seems unlikely that NO team would offer him 4m and that jersey is his last option.

 

i'd be all for giving him 4m if it also meant we'd found a way to unload salvador, but that's more than wishful thinking.

This season will have tons of back to back games, if he sits most of those out it would keep him pretty fresh.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Someone's gonna tell the 8th highest scoring player of all time he's sitting out back-2-backs?  I doubt it.

I think we have enough forwards. He will settle for the third line and play itch limited ice-time though then why not?

Jagr isn't Jagr anymore.  He just went all a whole playoff season where his team made all the way to game 6 of the finals and he didn't score a single goal.  What the hell do we want him for ?  Dallas completely hosed Boston for that first rounder.  If he came here for league min or close I guess I wouldn't mind.  I don't know how seriously he would take his position here if he was playing on the cheap.  It just seems like a big headache in the making.

I can't believe there is so much opposition. Even through his late season scoring droughts, Jagr was still dishing the puck with the best of them. On a team that has two or three solid passers, hands like Jagrs could work wonders for this PP

Yes

 

 

He is an amazing playmaker.  Period.

 

Yes he is old and almost done.....but having his experience and talent could be another one of those great pieces on a deep team.

I would take him in a heartbeat, and like others have said, would buy the jersey too :)

We should sign Larionov instead for a second go-round.

In other words Jägr is not drawing much interest from anyone in the NHL.

After watching Jägr in the playoffs I can see why Boston didn't want him back. His agent is getting desperate to start these rumors to draw interest in him.

The rumour should be that Jagr is willing to play for any team that willing to pay him.

recycled rumor every year, and due to the elias angle, is always credible but probably bullsh!t. won't bother thinking about it unless it really happens.
