“I’m not going to ask for a trade if everything stays the same. I’ll fight to the end. I like it here too much,” Jagr told The Star-Ledger. “I would hate to go to some team just to help them. I’d feel like a rented guy.

“They’d use me the way they want to, not because they need me. They’d already be happy with their team. I don’t think I’d play the same way. I need my 18-19 minutes. I need to play a lot in the third period when the game is on the line and guys are getting tired. I hope I stay. Everything can change, but I’ve had fun. I like the system we play. Even though it’s a more defensive system, I don’t mind it at all.”

Key to this is 'if things stay the same' - so if the Devils go into the toilet, I think he would request a trade.  Still weird that Jaromir Jagr plays for the Devils, but I'm damn glad to have him

i'm also plenty glad to have him and assume - at this point, that he'd be great to have here again next year. but oh would i love to not rely on him to be the #1 offensive option on this team.

Did he formally ask for a trade from Dallas or was it just kinda felt that the whole thing was uncomfortable and the Stars cleaned house anyway?

Man, the Devils have had their fair share of high level players end their careers in NJ, but it would really be something else to see Jagr finish as a Devil.

Hope he's here next year :) Would have LOVED to have gotten him when he left the Caps but better late than never! One of my all -time favorite players.

I am happy he is a Devil. It does appear he is having fun here except when we blow games.

Makes sense, if he were to change his mind if the Devils fall apart.  I think the Devils are what they are though...an NHL .500 team.  Since getting to 9-8-5, they haven't been over NHL .500 since.  And clearly not being able to score in shootouts is hurting them...if they had gone 3-3 in shootout instead of 0-6, they'd be 18-15-5, which is a bit easier on the eyes.  I don't see them tanking, but I don't see the Devils going on an extended hot streak either...not unless Schneider gets hot for a while.  Marty isn't consistent enough at this point in his career to ask that of him. 

 

If Jagr keeps producing, I wonder what kind of trade value he'd have to a team that really thinks Jagr could get them over the hump?  A 2nd-rounder?  Maybe a 3rd-rounder and a low-rounder? 
 

At any rate, it remains scary to think where the Devils would be without him.  They've needed every bit of his production.

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.

If things go in the toilet, the Devs may be asking him to accept a trade (if he has a NTC). The question would indeed be, what could they get back for him?

But, we are still in the hunt and he is a huge part of that. I'd rather give him the season, pass or fail, and see what happens.

I think Jagr gets re-signed if things stay status quo.  That's my bet.

I was totally against his signing because I thought it was a step backward, but he is having fun and playing really good hockey.  Not too keen on his lazy line changes where he just glides back while the other team is cycling in our end, but other than that I am glad he is here.

No we most certainly are not a playoff team.


Only way I'd move Jagr is if 

 

1. He wants a shot at another Cup and we are out of it (as we will be).

 

2. The return is substantial, ie a conditional 1st or a 2nd and decent prospect or young player at forward (moving him for a couple 3rd rd picks or marginal prospects is not worth it)

The Ducks and Pens are not in any way teams we 'should' beat, both are way ahead of us in points.

LOL.  Please just stop.  We are NOT a playoff team.  

 

We haven't played like one either so far this year except for a seven or eight game stretch.  Only way we sneak in at the 8th spot is if the craptastic division we play in continues to flounder and it becomes a race to the bottom.

 

We are not an awful team, but we are nowhere near to being anything more than a mediocre team.
