Where is all the people who said Jagr was going to be a cancer for the Flyers anyway and ruin the team chemistry? Jagr has been praised all year long as perfect example and for setting an example and tutoring the Flyers youngsters.

"You really wouldn't know (he's 40) the way he trains and practices," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. "His attitude … I think sometimes age is what you make it to be. He doesn't lean on that he's approaching 40. He doesn't come to practice like that. He doesn't look for days off. He doesn't use that. Actually, it's the exact opposite. He's been a terrific influence on our younger players … having them after practice or getting them extra work or coming back to the rink for some extra work. Just having his experience in the locker room, you wouldn't know that he's closing in on that number, and he doesn't play that card. He's been great."

The mentor role is one Jagr easily has adapted to.

"He's really different than I thought he'd be," teammate Jody Shelley told Yahoo! Sports earlier this season. "Just a great guy to be around for every single one of us."

Friday fun with Jagr:

Old commercial (1995):



Collection of old commercials:



Jagr's low-energy way of speaking a topic of a Czech HBO stand-up routine [He is known to start many replies with "Tak urcite" = "(So) definitely", run very long sentences connected with a 'singing' "a" = "And" , etc.)

Will NHL teams look at Jaromir Jagr’s 62 points in 84 games last year or at his birth certificate which would turn 41 in mid-season?

Can some offence-starved clubs afford not to look at him?

The much-decorated Jagr’s decision to join the Flyers last year after time in the KHL was something of a fluke after agent Petr Svoboda was approached by the team during dealings with another client, Jakub Voracek. Jagr was looking at Detroit, Pittsburgh and Montreal at the time. A surprise destination this year might also be in the cards.

“It’s up to my agent,” Jagr told Denik Sport, a Czech newspaper. “We will see what happens. You never know.”

Jagr was disappointed at his ice time late in the year. The Camden Courier Post reports Jagr is likely to seek a small raise on $3.3 million this season or hold off to wait out a rumoured change in the new CBA that players 40 and over will not have salaries count against the cap.


What about the rumoured issue that contracts with players over 40 won´t count against the cap? Is there any truth to it at all? I have not heard about this at all during the GM meetings?

That would be crazy. what would stop a desperate team from spending $10mil+ someone like jagr because it wouldnt count against the cap. that would be wacky.

Parise had 69 points in 82 games and Jagr had 62 points in 81 games (including playoffs).

Not much of a difference ;)

I was joking, although I find it absurd some people claim Parise should command 9 million, thats a complete joke.

Did Rupp just do that to insult the Flyers and Jagr? It looked funny :)
