We don't have space on the roster for Jagr; Pandolfo is way past his prime, and we've plenty of defense-first forwards; and Ference will likely be looking for a sort of long-term deal that, with the glut of defense prospects we have, he will not be offered here.

The only one that intrigues me is Ference, but like Crymson says, I don't think that'll happen due to our current situation.

I'd take Ference over Quincey considering that we need to become more physical for the Eastern conference. Seems like a decent fit while losing a lackluster guy like White.

I say we take Jagr if he is willing to sign for a little cheaper. I don't care what anyone says... the guy still has it. He was consistently creating tons of chances these playoffs, while playing on the 3rd line. He may not have scored a goal, but he hit at least 5 or 6 posts in the playoffs which were all wicked wristers. IMO if we can sign Jagr to a good deal for us, then he would fit right in playing on a line with Pavel Datsyuk. Jagr at age 41 will get more done playing with Pavs then Franzen half ass. On top of that, you can still sign another top 6 forward such as Horton, Weiss.

I swear to God I had no idea Jay Pandolfo was still playing in the NHL.   :lol:

 

Thought this guy retired years ago.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Jagr showed his age. He is now completely without the explosiveness he once possessed. Not scoring a single goal in 22 games despite playing on the 2nd line and on the PP for the fourth highest-scoring team in the playoffs really does not reflect well upon him. It matters not at all that he hit numerous posts during the playoffs; shots that posts are rightfully not even counted as shots, as there could be an empty net and they still would not go in.

 

Jagr is past his prime, and he'd serve as nothing here but a one-year plug. Not good.

Lol because when you hear "willing to sign for less" the first name that comes to mind is Jagr.

Yeah, I'd take Jagr on a cheap deal, but he'll be looking for $4M+, and he'll probly get it somewhere.


"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

Jammie wouldve been good a year or 2 ago, but he just doesn't fit what we need going forward. I like Ference, but I'd rather roll with the young guys for now.

Money will likely be used to re-sign Horton.

Probably, though perhaps he'd agree to take payment in services of some kind.

Ference should go to the Flyers.  Their D could use a durable, responsible Dman like him.  and waive Grossman.

I say sign Jagr, if only for the playoff "mutton-stache".

You do that, you go to the box, you know.
Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know.
And then you get free.

Wow, Boston's going to look quite a bit different next season: Horton seeking free agency.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
