Wanted him when he left pit.  Was disappointed when he left the NHL.  Wanted him when he came back.  Wanted him when he chose Dallas.  I still want him in the Winged Wheel sweater.  Of all the gambles we have taken and lost out on, this would be the least upsetting one to me if it didn't work out.  That being said, the only way he could hurt us is if he got injured right after getting him.

What kills me about many Wings fans and Jagr in general is that had the guy been drafted here instead of Primeau, he'd likely be a hero and celebrated for all of his, umm, "eccentricities" and his hair and whatever else people whine about. He's always had his issues, but he's always been a phenomenal hockey player and has proven that he's still capable of being quite effective out there. And I haven't heard anything too negative about him lately, though I haven't followed him closely. If he was a relatively cheap option, he'd be a great pickup heading in to the playoffs. I highly, highly doubt that it will happen, but to just automatically write off the idea of it because of stuff that mostly happened over ten years ago just seems silly.

 

Look at the system Jagr came up in too. He watched Mario Lemeiux run Scotty Bowman out of town. He saw a bunch of guys throw tantrums, then some were traded, and the team had to tighten up on D, but they won a Cup, and then they sent Bowman on his way. Things might have been different for Jagr had he come up with the Wings, who had a little bit better character in the locker room and management that was committed to Bowman's management, not to mention, Bowman in general shaping this guy. Jagr might've turned out more like Federov in terms of level of obnoxiousness and less like he did.

 

But Paul Coffey no doubt would've been traded by Bowman again. No. Effing. Doubt.  :lol:

No doubt Jagr would help the Wings a bunch, but we have pursued him in the past, & he's chosen to go elsewhere. . When he came back to the NHL, there was lots of talk about the Wings being in the mix, and I was pretty disappointed when he went to Philly. He is having a solid season and would greatly add to our scoring punch. If Dallas decided to get rid of their captain, they'll move Jagr too, if the price is right.

Iunno...some dudes  :lol:   i didn't think that far ahead.  Just an off the cuff wish.  

 

Guess i'd have to start the deal with Flip, just like every other one, but after that I don't know who else Dallas would need.  They could re-sign Flip, Ferraro would probably be good for them, I would no doubt try to pawn off Quincey or White to them and see what other higher end prospect they'd want from us at which time I would throw Pulkkinen's name into the mix.

Nah. Just my two cents. I'd trade Andersson, McCollum, and a 2nd for Jagr.

Emmerton, Cleary and a 5th of course!  Throw in a conditional 2014 4th rounder if Jagr re-signs with us ;)

 

If we were to get Jagr, I couldn't see him playing with Dats - there's only 1 puck and they can't both have it.


"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

For sure, with what the Pens gave away for Iginla, the prices will be ridiculous for aquiring teams this trade deadline

The Pens gave up practically nothing to get Iginla.  They gave up more to get Brendan Morrow.  

 

I'd like to see Jagr in Detroit, but he raved about how much he loved Philly and they had a good team and he left for Dallas.  If we traded for him, he would be a 2 month rental, so we would need to give up like a 5th round pick and a low end prospect to make it worth our while.

Yeah, Jagr would not be long term, no matter what he says. That's got to lower Dallas' asking price.
