It would probably best serve the organization to give Grandpa Jagr's theorectical ice time to a younger player who can develop for the long term, instead of renting a has been who is going to want several millions more than what he is worth.

Who? If we had an abundance of good young wings, I'd completely agree with you, but Matteau would benefit from a year in the AHL, Tedenby looks like a bust, and if DeBo ends up benching Gio, I don't think anybody would freak out too badly (much as I and some others like him as a person). I was in favor of the Tallinder trade for exactly that reason, but there are blueliners in the system who stood to gain from that.

And to this day Richer is the last Montreal Canadiens player to score 50 goals in a season.
Meeting him three weeks ago was a thrill and glad I got his autograph and got to shook his hand. Wish there was a bigger turnout though.


..yeah, he was far and away one of the nicest guys I've ever had the chance to meet.
How publicized was the autograph signing? I didn't even hear a mention of it anywhere. I definitely would've went to see Magnum‘44. Glad you got the opportunity if you've never in the past.

It was publicized on their FB page as well as on the 233 Crazies FB page, and JAG Sports page.  Outside of that nothing else really.

 

I should have put it on here in the Autograph signings thread in the Marketplace, but honestly every time I saw it I said to myself I would but then when I got here I would forget.  I honestly forgot about it again until the day before.

Jagr in our top 6 would pretty much mean JJ is relegated to 4th line duty all season.

Would rather have Josefson in there, he is going to have a breakout year.

Anyone expecting tons of goals out of Jagr at this point in his career is demented.  He's a 20 goal guy.  Can 20 goal guys have huge playoff droughts?  Sure can.  Hell, Holik went years in the playoffs without scoring, and that was near his prime.  Did Jagr have 10 assists, which is basically what we should expect out of him?  Did he drive play to a great degree? Yes, and yes.  The concern I'd have is him holding up over 82 games, but someone in the NHL should be signing this guy.

I don't know about that breakout year, though I do think he's better than his stat line has suggested in the past. I 100% agree that I'd rather have JJ get some ice time with quality line-mates.

When I think of JJ, I think of this play. I really hope he can have a good year because I see the talent he has and I think he can be a very effective player.

I just watched a 10 second part of that video 3 times wondering why they were saying Josefson passed it when the player was wearing #9. I feel dumb.

If you watch the below the net camera I think you can tell Josefson didn't pass that but it was the defenseman knocking the puck away.

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.

I'd say him actually staying healthy and staying up with the big club all season would be a breakout.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Too bad JJ didn't actually assist on that play.

Maybe he is, but I don't see Jagr hurting him. I'd have no problem putting Jagr on Josefson's wing on the third line.

If we're looking for a right winger I'd rather have Brad Boyes. He's younger, has great numbers and is a right handed shot.

Did they intentionally keep this a secret??  I would have loved to see him and gotten an autograph.

 

Hell yeah, I'm a HUGE Richer fan from back in the day
