We got tons of skill and finesse we need power. Our weakness is that we get pushed around and to the perimeters

 

Umm do you know how Jagr plays the game?

 

I understand he's old, but he's still a very effective board player, and still can take it to the net like the best of them.

 

I think it would be very interesting, I don't think he provides the overall game that we need, but he would certainly help offensively, he can really slow the game down and I think would fit really well with Filpulla.

Too heavy a cap hit. 

 

It's bad, but he might be worth it with the dearth of free-agent forwards we'll see in this offseason.

Dude has 14 goals, thats 3 more than anyone on our team.  $4.5M is nothing, we've got tons of space.  I would love it if we coudl get him (he might well cost more than Morrow did though, despite being a potential rental).

 

As others have said, gives us 2 legit PP units if we could get him.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Dallas isn't going to move him, they are still in the playoff hunt.

Why did Dallas trade away the captain of the team to the pens then?
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

I don't think that its a bad option. I do agree the second pp needs help. This also could be fixed by adding Jay Bo. Good puck moving d-men help power plays big time. The Wings GA has been pretty good lately but I think it has more to do with Jimmy standing on his head then good defense. Jagr and Jay Bo! Get it done Kenny

I don't watch  him enough to say one way or another.  But I did hear some other team's announcer say that he works very hard at staying in shape, and that he's mostly an ice-rat.   


"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Cammalleri and Jagr are both viable options.

I think Cam and Jagr would be a good 2nd line addition as long as Bertuzzi is out for the season. Yandle would be a better option for the poweplay than Jay Bo would.

Bouwmeester is not exceptionally good on the power play, and I am not at all interested in him.

No thanks to Jagr, he wouldn't help at all and will cost way to much for two months of service.

Have you seen him play? Specially on the PP. Not sure I understand why you say he wouldn't help at all.

Is Jags even comfortable being a PP "specialist"? If so, bring him over. That's a huge weak point on this year's team.

Jags can be way more than a PP specialist. Guy would instantly upgrade our top 6. He's a bull you can't take the guy off thd puck. He would create so much space for pav

Was hesitant about him when he came back to the NHL, but he's proven he still has it.

Trade for him, rental or not. We are making playoffs and need more scoring threat.
