“Not many teams are looking for a forward my age, especially with the salary cap going down,” Jagr said, as per NHL.com. “My agent [Petr Svoboda] asked if I would be willing to play for New Jersey and I was. I talked to Lou [Lamoriello] even before [ilya] Kovalchuk retired and after he retired.

“I felt it was even more important for me to play on the Devils roster [after Kovalchuk's NHL retirement].”

I wish they were quicker with the shirts.. Definitely buying one.. I just hope they stop printing them with the smaller font that, for some reason, started appearing on the shirts this year

Agreed. I'm seriously contemplating getting either a jagr jersey or shirt or both

Just finally found my Kovalchuk red jersey shirt from 2 years ago to burn. It was beat to hell anyway, washed so many times it was falling apart. Went to Modells over the weekend and picked up a Zajac one. Saw Marty and Henrique ones there too, thought of getting a Henrique, but I was like, nope not until he signs. Not jinxing it and not buying a shirt I can't wear in public if somehow he gets away.

I was gonna stop in Mo's to see if they put the Kovy jersey's on clearance. Did you notice if they had any authentics on the racks marked down? They did it with Parise last year and I didn't even think of grabbing authentic jersey for like $50 and having it stripped/redone.

this is from TG's blog today

Lamoriello, asked about restricted free agent Adam Henrique, said there were no updates “at this point but we certainly are hopeful. We’ll do everything we can.”

I don't like the way this sounds

tempting to pick up a Jagr jersey. Kinda cool we get a legend of the sport, even if it is at the end of his career. i think it will help with the locker room and on ice play, even if he is a bit slower.

 

looking forward to this season.

 

I don't care about Brunner anymore, i don't think it's happening. i just want Lou to lock up Henrique.

It was in Rockaway, and I did notice a distinct lack of Kovalchuk merch in the store. I think I saw some of the jersey shirts online for like $9. I'm sure it was while supplies last...

 

Damn! That's where I was gonna check since I work over that area. No jerseys though huh? I guess I can check the Newton one too. No joke they had the authentic $300 Parise jersey's for something like $50 last year when all that happened. Hind sight I really should have bought a couple to have them redone to something I wanted.

No modells anywhere at anytime have ever had authentics for any hockey team. All I have ever seen at dicks, modells and sports authority in the last 10-15 years are replicas.

Then they marked it up a hell of a lot or I really did just look at it too quick. I could have sworn it was sewn on jerseys not heat pressed and they were priced in the $300 range. Or I could be going crazy, which also makes sense.

I cut up my Parise shirt into a rag to use for fishing (I cut out the NJ on the front and didn't use that...yes, I am being serious) and I finally tossed it the other day, it had run it's course... luckily, I have a fresh Kovalchuk shirt to throw right in it's place!

Good for you! Now let's all get Jagr shirts and hope we can at least appreciate them! :)
