Hey, does anyone know if Jagr is expected to play in Olympics?  If not it would be a nice little rest for him before the rest of the season.

It's funny...Jagr's almost like the rock star that didn't really enjoy it when he was on top of the world playing in sold-out stadiums, but is having a lot more fun playing in small clubs.  I think he loves the game much more now than he ever did at his peak.

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.

Tough call.  But I think the player has a better handle on his own body than we do.  So if he feels he can play in the Olympics, I'm cool with it,

Not playing in the Olympics is def better for an older guy like Jagr. Whether he'd want to pass that up to stay rested for a run in the playoffs is up to him and I don't think I could ever blame a guy for wanting to represent his country, but I would think you feel those extra games if you make a deep run in the playoffs that year.

But then you have to worry about the rust factor.  Older players actually sometimes need to keep playing to stay loose.  Younger players are always ready to play no matter how long of a break they get.

martin brodeur right there.. said himself he needs to keep playing to stay in his groove.. once they start switching back and forth and hes sits a couple in a row hes not as fresh as he would be if he was playing..and it shows too.

@NHLDevils: Jagr on his empty-netter: "Great move: spin-o-rama, backhand shot, top shelf. Faked the goalie out. What a great move, what a great deke."

@TGfireandice: Jagr: “I said that and I don’t want to sound smart, but I am.”

@TGfireandice: Jagr: "I just know things. I also know we're going to win the Stanley Cup. Dont' tell anybody."

while i do not believe in buying jerseys of guys that aren't here for a while, i may have to make an exception for jagr. this wouldn't exactly be an andreychuk jersey

I bought a Jagr t-shirt last week. And I actually have an Andreychuk jersey. I might be one of maybe 5 Devils fans with a Dave Andreychuk jersey rofl.

It's funny that you mention that because there was actually someone wearing an Andreychuk jersey sitting in front of me on Friday and I made a mental note of it because I couldn't remember ever seeing one before haha.

I have to admit that I may have been wrong about Jagr. He is really starting to find his niche here.

 

+1

 

Check out the thread where the Devils signed Jagr. To a man, almost everyone here was happy about it. Like you, I was one of the few that was skeptical of the Devils signing him.

 

I am proud to say he has won me over so far. I just hope he can last the season. That was my initial concern.

The way he is playing and by the sound of how much fun he is having I really would not be surprised if baring injury he stays in Tyne nhl another two or three years.

He is so dominant at possessing the puck in the offensive zone that it will take a long time for that skill to tail off to the point where he wouldn't be effective.

Jagr cannot be the only forward producing if we wanna go far this year.  Our 2nd best scoring forward(s) all have 7 points.  We have 6 different forwards with 7 points.

At least Elias is a result of lack of games played.

 

As for the rest, it probably isn't going to get that much better, but some of those guys should approach .5-.6 points per game at least.
