I would LOVE to see him in a Pens jersey for league min, though I struggle to pick him over a dependable, penalty killing Talbot/Dupuis etc
Talbot isn't a 2nd line RW, and Duper only is top 6 because we have no other choice on that side. Jags wouldn't be penalty killing. If we could learn to not be one of the most penalized teams in the league, the PK wouldn't have to bail us out every game.
Don't get me wrong, I have no illusions over Talbot and Duper's capabilities as top 6 players, nor do I expect to see Jagr killing penalties!
My point: IF Jags signed for around 1mil would you jettison a player with a comparable salary who is not a gamble, more versatile, was a part of the #1 PK unit, and is a popular locker room presence?
Personally I would because I like to dream...
