Seeing Jagr play like the old Jagr again has been bittersweet in a way for me.
BTW, I never really asked why he wanted to be traded in 2001. Jagr wanted to be traded, but why? Were the Penguins not paying him in full or did he want to play elsewhere for his model girlfriend or some other reason? I guess I never asked because it really sucked to see him leave so I didn't wanna know, maybe I was in denial over him wanting to go, and he would have left anyway cuz the Pens couldn't afford him.
But anyway, as troubling as his attitude was sometimes, it would have been nice to be able to keep him around.
But we wouldn't have Crosby if Jagr was still around, so I guess it turned out to be a good thing after all.
I can't be the only one wishing he was still here though. Just imagine Crosby and Jagr together... Oh well.
