#2375165 Red Wings should pursue Jagr

No they should not.

He has 6 power play goals at the moment, the only Wing that matches that is...guess who..Datsyuk! Put Datsyuk out there with Jagr or Jagr leading the second power play, and then my friend we would have a power play teams actually feared again

I really don't think we should waste even 1 draft pick on Jagr. Mostly for the reasons you gave (he's old and likely won't resign next year) And yeah our PP was pretty sorry earlier in the seaon. But now we're looking much better with the man advantage. If im not mistaken I think we've scored at least 1 PP goal in the last 7-8 games. On top of that we'll have Helm back any day now, and eventually Bertuzzi.


We need an elite defenseman. And out of all the names I've been hearing I really hope for either Keith Yandle or Lubomir Visnovsky

Counting on Bertuzzi is a long shot, i'll be surprised if he even returns in the next 3 weeks.  Helm will be back, but that is not going to improve our power play.  And think about this, who knows how many more years Pavel will be here for, wouldn't it be nice to see him on the same line as another crafty forward
