Didn't he leave the NHL because the season was to taxing on him? I don't want him anywhere near the Wings locker room.

10 years ago, this would have been a no-brainer.


4 years ago still a no brainer... but no where near reality either...

Jagr was close to a point a game 4 years ago. thats easily a 4-5 million dollar player now a days. 10 years ago he was a 100+ point scorer aka a 7-8 million dollar player now a days.. no chance...

Why does everyone keep saying we need to get younger? Rafalski's gone and Draper might not be back, so outside of Lidstrom where are all these "old" players?

In our mind bro. I'm glad the Bruins didn't look at Recchi and go, "nah, he's too old".

You could argue that replacing Draps with a 39-yr old is not getting younger, but I agree with you. The wings are no longer an "old" team. Theres a difference between experienced and old.

Dont forget that Salei is being shown the door as well.
Crosby is a crybaby *****

Not sure if NHL season was too taxing on him but Russians certainly didn't tax his paycheck.

$7M/season in Russia is equivalent to $11M-$14M in NHL (depending on team).

He was the only Ranger with heart during his last NHL playoffs. He also had a speach during last years world championship when they lost to Norway and Switzerland and had to beat Canada to stay in the competition, he scored the GWG and then they won the whole tournament beating Russians in the final (with Ovechkin, Malkin, Datsyuk, Kovalchuk, Semin, Fedorov, Gonchar). In the Czech Republic he's perceived as one of the few athletes that gives a s***.

If Jagr went to the Wings, he'd be 2nd or 3rd (Franzen + maybe Cleary are better) best winger on the team. Seriously, if Bertuzzi or Holmstrom can play in the top6, then Jagr is a clear upgrade. This is not even arguable. Plus Jagr would be by far the best player on the 2nd PP unit. For a good cap hit (under 2M) Jagr is a no brainer.

Jagr took an obvious cash grab with Washington and played a few blah seasons there - outside of that I can't really think of anything negative about his character, his competitiveness or his locker room presence. Jagr and Hasek, IMO, take a lot of undeserved flak.

Wings need to win now, while Dats and Zets are still in their primes and Lids is still great. Jagr may not be the answer, but if they have the cap space to grab a potential game changer like him, even for just one year, I am more than ok with losing someone like Emmerton, who might pan out as a bottom line forward.

What have we learned from Modano?

We learned to NOT get your wrist sliced open by a hockey skate, sever some tendons and miss 3 months of the season or else "fans" everywhere will say you were a horrible signing and sucked... :rolleyes:



Jesus! Modano played 40 games and had 15 points, what does that prorate out to an 80 games season? 30 points, which is well worth $1M... We all knew he wasn't going to come here and score 50 goals. Hell Hudler played in 73 games and only had 37 points for $2.8M! I'd take Modano's 30 points (prorated) @ $1M again before I'd take Hudler's 37 points @ $2.8M... :puke:

Looks like Jagr's agent thinks he would be great here.
