As per the Bruins' twitter account - GMPC has told Jagr (and Jay Pandolfo) they will not be resigned.

Jagr lost his shot after the 2005-2006 season when he had shoulder surgery, his release has been much worse since then. He never has recovered from that surgery.

Look at the goals he scored for the Rangers that season and compare his shooting with the Bruins, its night and day.


On this, I will totally agree with you, Jagr-fanaticsky.

Jagr "looked" dangerous all throughout the playoffs, but his release is so much slower than it used to be and that's why he can't light the lamp any more. His age has caught up to him and while still skilled, he's pretty much shot now as a NHL player. Time to hang 'em up.


I agree. Its like when Lemieux could not score on breakaways in his last seasons.

Who wants to sign a guy that has 0 goals in his last 30 playoff games or whatever it is?

In fairness to Jagr he had a couple of posts that were brilliant shots, so he is not that bad as the record looks, but still no excuse for zero goals.

His playmaking skills are still elite, but you have to light the lamp once in a while too.

So I will not expect Jagr to return to the NHL.

He was still the best player in the czech league this year, so he can play a few more years back there if he wants.

I thought the opposite. IMO, part of the reason Jagr looked so good offensively is because he didn't get a lot of respect on the ice in 2013; he usually had a lot of space to work with in the games I watched. Defenses cheated on him. Especially the Pens. He seemed to float a lot and picked his moments to expend energy.


Given my location I watched just about every Boston playoff game...he created a lot of space for Kelly and Peverley when he was playing with them and for Bergeron and Marchand. He just couldn't execute, his hands and feet are too slow, his balance was off quite a bit. The guy's just old, but still threaded quite a few dangerous passes.

I'm still predicting he does one more season, probably with a team out West.

Jags to the Ducks. 1 year, $2.5-3m.

Jagr’s rep has taken unprecedented 180-degree turn

http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/more_spo ... omnj9BaqeK

By LARRY BROOKS


The transformation in the public perception of Jaromir Jagr is unprecedented. Once widely regarded as a corrosive villain, No. 68 is now welcomed as a cuddly superhero. Previously portrayed as divisive and selfish, he is now everyone’s favorite uncle, dispensing wit and wisdom to all who gather ’round.

Jagr had one career with the Penguins and Capitals, in which he was Darth Vader. Now, he is having a second career that began with the Rangers (with the singular and revolutionary season of 2005-06) during which he has become Yoda.

Says the guy that is defending Harry Zolnierczyk (he was only 20 years old so he is excused) for his role in the production and distribution of a pornographic video involving an underage girl. Harry ruined that girls life and you make excuses for him. And yet you are picking on Jagr time after time, just incredible, you are really something else :face:

All I did was question the situation, and based off the one article, there wasn't a lot to go on. And no where in the article did it say the girl's life was ruined. Are you related to Jagr or something?

Lol. So you are going to let a criminal scum get of the hook because you only read one news paper article and did not get the whole picture? Would you be happy if your daughter or girlfriend were secretly taped and put up on the web as pornstars? When that happens to a girl, their life is surely gonna be hell for a long time.

http://www.canada.com/albernivalleytime ... 95d4453ca1

I will let that go now, just finding it absurd you would excuse that kind of disrespectful & disgusting behavior, and still knock on Jagr for total bogus reasons.

I guess sadly your irrational hatred for Jagr is stronger than your supposed to have common sense :thumbdown:

I would defend my other childhood idol Mario Lemieux the same way if he was injustly mocked and picked on all the time.

Criminal scum? Jesus, :lol:. Pretty much the only thought I had on the matter was I wouldn't classify him as a pedophile, because if I understood, he was like 19-20 and the girl was a year or two younger. It's not like she was twelve. He was stupid. Whatever. If he's still doing stuff like this when he's 30, I'll call him a jagoff just like Jagr. Who, continuously, has shown himself to be a jagoff over and over and over and over again.

Jagr will sign where he can get the most money and then will be traded if he isn't on a contender for picks/players.

He would be worth the money just in example he could provide younger players and what he could bring back at deadline.

I think Edmonton would be wise to make a 1 year investment in Jagr.

Peter Chiarelli Says Bruins Thinking About ‘Circling Back’ on Jaromir Jagr in Search for Winger

Read more at: http://nesn.com/2013/07/peter-chiarelli ... -a-winger/
At the Bruins’ break-up day last week just a couple of days after losing the Stanley Cup Final, general manager Peter Chiarelli informed the media that he and the B’s would be moving on from future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr. “I told Jaromir we wouldn’t be signing him,” Chiarelli stated on June 26. However, things change sometimes. While the Bruins haven’t signed or presumably even offered Jagr a contract, Chiarelli admitted Wednesday that the Bruins were thinking about “circling back” and revisiting the idea of signing the free-agent winger. “You know actually we have thought of circling back,” Chiarelli told reporters Wednesday. “We told him we were moving on so he may have moved on, also. It’s something that we may revisit. He’s on a list … of a bunch of guys. I’d like to go into this, when I talk about reconstructing the right side, maybe we can get some youth in there too in addition to an older guy. When I say older it’s relatively speaking. It’s just older than a youthful player. It could be old now. 28 is the old 32. It’s all relative.” It’s an interesting twist, no matter how big the Bruins’ actual interest in re-signing Jagr actually is. The 41-year-old was acquired at the trade deadline from Dallas. In 33 games including the playoffs, Jagr scored just two goals and had 17 assists with both of those goals coming in the regular season. However, the Bruins do have a hole on the right wing after free-agent Nathan Horton decided he was going to test the market and will not be re-signing with the B’s. Chiarelli also said Jordan Caron is an option to fill the void at right wing.

Best pick at No. 5: Jaromir Jagr, Penguins

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=674871


To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first NHL Draft, NHL.com assembled a 13-member panel to select the best first-round picks of all time, based on selection number. NHL.com will feature one of the top first-round picks each day, beginning with the best No. 30 pick on June 1 and culminating with the all-time No. 1 pick on June 30, the day of the 2013 NHL Draft.

Today: The best No. 5 pick: Jaromir Jagr, Pittsburgh Penguins, 1990

When the Philadelphia Flyers arrived at the 1990 NHL Draft, they had a skinny Czechoslovakian forward at the top of their board, and when their turn with the fourth pick came up, Jaromir Jagr was there waiting for them. Instead, Flyers general manager Russ Farwell got nervous about picking a European player so high and opted for Canadian center Mike Ricci.

With the next pick, the Pittsburgh Penguins were more than happy to select Jagr. Two Stanley Cups and a treasure trove of trophies later, NHL.com's Dream Draft panel voted Jagr the best No. 5 first-round pick.

Jagr made an immediate impact in Pittsburgh on and off the ice. He played a key role in the team winning the Stanley Cup in his first two seasons, and his productivity -- along with his iconic, thick, black mullet -- made him one of the most popular players in team history.

Jagr moved from complementary piece to a starring role in 1992-93 with the first of back-to-back 90-point seasons. In the lockout-shortened 1994-95 season, he won his first of five Art Ross trophies with 70 points in 48 games.

Jagr was even better in 1995-96, setting career-highs with 62 goals and 149 points, each second to teammate Mario Lemieux among League leaders.

With Lemieux retiring after that season, Jagr became the Penguins' top star. He hit the 100-point mark again in 1997-98, with his 102 leading the League and winning the first of four straight Art Ross trophies. His best season in that span was 1998-99, when he had 127 points and was second with 44 goals. He won the Hart Trophy as League MVP and the Lester B. Pearson Award as the League's most outstanding player as voted by the players.
FAN POLL: BEST OF NO. 5 PICKS
Who is the best all-time first-round Draft pick taken at No. 5?

Rick Martin (BUF, 1971)
Scott Stevens (WSH, 1982)
Tom Barrasso (BUF, 1983)
Jaromir Jagr (PIT, 1990)

He won the Pearson/Ross duo in 1999-2000, and in 2000-01 won his fifth Art Ross with 121 points, to go with 52 goals. But with the Penguins unable to meet Jagr's contract demands, he was traded to the Washington Capitals in the summer of 2001, ending an 11-season run in Pittsburgh that saw him total 439 goals, 640 assists and 1,079 points in 806 games, numbers that rank second to Lemieux in each category.

Jagr signed a seven-year, $77 million contract, then led the Capitals in scoring in each of his two full seasons in Washington. However, he never scored more than 80 points, got the team into the playoffs once, and with the Capitals looking to cut costs, was traded to the New York Rangers on Jan. 23, 2004.

After playing in Europe during the 2004-05 lockout, Jagr returned to New York re-energized and finished second in the League with 54 goals and 126 points, each a single-season Rangers record. He finished second in voting for the Hart Trophy and won the Pearson for the third time.

Named captain prior to the 2006-07 season, he responded by scoring a goal on his first shift, 29 seconds into a season-opening 5-2 win against the Capitals at Madison Square Garden. He went on to have his 10th 90-point season and led the team with 30 goals, 66 assists and 96 points, eighth-highest in the League.

Along the way he scored his 600th goal and 1,500th point, and tied Mike Gartner's NHL record with his 15th straight 30-goal season.

Jagr left the Rangers after the 2007-08 season and spent the next three playing in Russia. He returned to the NHL at age 39 with the Philadelphia Flyers in 2011-12 and had 54 points in 73 games while serving as a respected leader. He signed with the Dallas Stars in the summer of 2012 and was leading the team with 14 goals and 26 points when he was traded to the Boston Bruins. Four months past his 41st birthday, Jagr remains a vital contributor to the Bruins' run to the Stanley Cup Final.

Jagr ranks 10th in NHL history in goals (681) and eighth in points (1,688), and is one of 12 players with more than 1,000 assists. He's the leading scorer among non-Canadian players.

Those marks made him a convincing choice by NHL.com's Dream Draft panel, ahead of Hall of Fame member Scott Stevens and Jagr teammate Tom Barrasso.

"Happily, for various reasons, the perception of Jaromir Jagr the person has now evolved to match the reality: that he is a hard worker who deeply cares about the game and his teammates," NHL Vice President of Public Relations and former Rangers beat writer John Dellapina said. "The talent never has been in question, an extremely rare combination of dazzling skill and overwhelming strength. And anybody with access to an NHL Guide and Record Book must acknowledge that there have been only a handful of players in League history who have been more relentlessly productive.

"There were some brilliant players chosen fifth overall. Jagr is a cut above. Jagr is special."

Voting: Jaromir Jagr, Pittsburgh (1991) 10; Scott Stevens, Washington (1982) 3
