Jagr is not worth the money that he's gonna get. Not even close. Your dreams of Jagr lifting the Cup for Pittsburgh are the dreams of a fanboy. Get over it. The guy had a chance last year to make right and blew it. That was the only chance he was gonna get.

And did you see how he played for the Flyers in the playoffs? He sucked. He got a bunch of secondary assists, and scored 1 goal in 11 games. That goal came on a really bad rebound with not a single defender close to him. He was a non-factor. There is no spot for him on the Penguins' lineup. He can re-sign with the orange retards for all I care.

I never thought I'd be saying this a year ago, but the Pens certainly could use his leadership and example. Everything I've seen made him out to be a very humble, dedicated, mature individual in Philly. That should probably be welcome on a team that turned into a bunch of children throwing a tantrum after they had no one to blame but themselves for being down 2-0 in the series.

The Flyers melted down in the Devils series and played like punks during the Pens series. Giroux even took himself out of the last game because he was mad at a good non-call on a clean hit that wasn't even that violent. He broke his stick over the net at the end of one loss and showed no signs of maturity even after Jagr called him "Mario." There were spears, elbows, charges, and other breakdowns in discipline in the last game even before it became evident that the Flyers were toast.

Jagr and many of the other Flyers disappeared from the scoresheet once they knocked off the Pens. He's a shadow of his former self and he's not what the Pens needed this year or will need next year. They need discipline, grit, and a willingness to make the sacrifices necessary to play playoff defense.

For the record, I don't endorse bringing Jagr in. As great as he apparently was as a person this season, you always worry that he'll turn up the diva act, especially in a situation in Pittsburgh where he'd be behind two established superstars. I don't think bringing in a guy who will turn 41 during the season is the answer. It's really just more disgust of what this team turned into. I never thought a Crosby-led Pens team would be so mentally weak. They crumbled under adversity that was their own creation to begin with. While I don't think Jagr's the guy, I do think one of the things Shero needs to do this summer is to figure out the leadership situation here. There's no situation where a team of seasoned playoff veterans with a Cup win under their belt should have the kind of meltdown that they did in game three where they pretty much gave up in the first and started thugging it up instead of trying to win a must-win playoff hockey game.

With the lack of mettle that Letang, Sid, and Geno showed during the Philly series, the Pens could use some veteran leadership. On the other hand, they also need to get younger and faster. Jagr might be a decent compliment to Geno on his wing, but they will need to obtain a right handed shooter for the power play. Sullivan hopefully will not be back, and TK probably is not the answer in the top 6. Jagr stated that the Pens have too many left handed shooters and I actually agree with that. There is no way in hell they can afford a big name guy in free agency, but if they are forced to trade Staal, a player might be available who could help in that capacity. Are there any young, right handed third line centers on entry level or low paying deals who can score and help on the power play?

Because a top 6 of Sid/Kunitz/Dupuis and Neal/Malkin/Jagr is quite formidable.

And I thought he would fit in here in a limited role last summer, but he wanted first line minutes and that probably wasn't going to happen here.
But I don't think I want him here now, too much baggage. He is a big body but he loafs and takes shifts off.

That kind of personal insult is out of line and uncalled for. Don't like the thread? Good, stay out and leave others be.
You do not arbitrate what can or cannot be discussed here and you definitely do not decide who can be a member here.
Grow up.


No, Spirit fan trolls this board constantly and has started multiple threads over his displeasure with this place and makes a grand announcement that he is leaving the board. Then always comes back to stir up crap. I hardly see how asking "I thought you were leaving?" to a guy that has repeatedly said he was quitting the board yet never does is out of line. Just don't make a scene every single time you post and there will be no questions.

Jagr should end his great career playing for his homeland! After the 2014 olympics.

Unless he came back for league min. that would show his heart was in it. Even then the urgh to boo him would be hard to hold back.

Penguins Trade: Fleury, Dupuis, Conditional 7th Rnd Pick
Flyers Trade: Bryzgalov, Talbot, Rights to Jagr
Jagr gets his needed playing time/big contract and we save room in the cap to keep the big three, letang and get ourselfs a nice UFA at the deadline.

Neal - Malkin - Jagr
Kunitz - Crosby - Jagr
Cooke - Staal - Sullivan
CFA - Vitale - Talbot

Orpik - Letang
Engelland - Niskanen
Michalek - Jagr
Martin

Bryzgalov
