Any Interest in Jagr?
 
He announced he will play again next year...

Any interest in adding the geezer to the squad?

I would be for it depending on the cost if we don't sign Suter or Parise

Kiss My Rask 04-11-2012 03:23 PM

he'll stay in Philly

I think the role he'd fill isn't something the Bruins need, but he's obviously worth a look.

I think you could probably keep Rolston around for less and get similar play--not sure if Jagr will produce 19G/35A again at 40/41. Rolston has shown that he fits in well in Boston and can still contribute--at least in a Bs uniform.

Personally, I'd rather see the Bruins go after Teemu Selanne. He's older, but he scored 26 goals and had 40 assists this season. More importantly, I think he's on the last year of his coontract and he's flirted with the idea of retiring--but I think the Bruins could convince him to join up with the promise of yet another cup run. Also, I don't know if they were buddies, but he did play with Thornton during the Duck's Cup Win, so he knows at least one person in Boston, and I think he'd fill the role of the "old, experienced guy" with as little risk as possible of having a hole in scoring production somewhere in the lineup.

No matter what, the Bruins should be solid up-front. I'd really like to see them pick up a rugged, experienced defender to round out their blue line.

Pay Carl 04-11-2012 03:29 PM

Id like Selanne too... Maybe the Ducks keep him til the trade deadline and if it doesnt work out like this year pull a Bourque and trade him this way

McKuato 04-11-2012 03:36 PM

Never liked Jagr. Always seemed like a floater to me.
If Hall Gill can shut you down and then you don't even try, why would we want a guy like that?

Fenian24 04-11-2012 03:39 PM

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOO

He's everything the Bruins aren't, a selfish whiner who only cares about himself. Thank God I don't think Chiarelli would ever consider this move.

missingchicklet 04-11-2012 03:43 PM

I don't think Jagr fits in well with our system. I highly doubt Chia would go after him even if he did become available.

reidy 04-11-2012 03:44 PM

At his current age I would say no, but talk about a lack of respect to one of the greatest players in history ITT.

LSCII 04-11-2012 03:49 PM

Only if he's willing to regrow his 80s-90s mullet. He and Quaider together with those mullets would be unstoppable...:naughty:

Artemis 04-11-2012 03:55 PM

1. Why would he come to Boston, unless Chiarelli blew him out of the water with an insane offer? Every comment I've seen from the guy he's happier playing with Giroux than a pig in poop.

2. Why would Chiarelli blow his budget on Jagr?

RussellmaniaKW 04-11-2012 04:02 PM

By all accounts, Jagr has worked his ass off in Philly this year so I don't really think he fully deserves his lazy/floater reputation. With that said, I don't think he's a fit here.

rocketdan9 04-11-2012 04:02 PM

I would love Jagr on our team. Prob has one or two more years left. Still an awsome player and its impossible to take the puck off of him.

I would put him on the third line though.

Bruinsfan_37 04-12-2012 08:27 AM

Always liked Jagr, I have no problem if he ever wanted to play here, I just don't see him leaving the Flyers

Jagr is stupid for leaving the NHL couple for years ago, would have been # 2 all time in points!

Unless your Hall Gill then you look like Scott Stevens against Jagr :laugh:

mikelvl 04-12-2012 08:41 AM

No interest, and not just because RocketDan thinks it's a good idea...:sarcasm:

Morris Wanchuk 04-12-2012 08:41 AM

Good god no.

ODAAT 04-12-2012 09:04 AM

Nope

MOOKER411 04-12-2012 09:42 AM

I wouldn't rule anything out. Pouliott and Rolston are fitting in well and will likely be resigned for cheap. Hopefully Kelly will be resigned as well. The big question mark is Horton. If Horton comes back then we don't need to look at adding anybody. If he struggles with concussion symtoms next season it is definately something that may need to be addressed. Let us wait and see how our boys perform this year in the playoffs and go from there. I think Peverley will be fine in our top 6 but again time will tell.
If we bow out early I would love to add a few players before Jagr is looked at such as Jorome Iginla but the price will be high. If Iginla would sign an extension it might be worth giving up a top pick and prospect but not for one year. I would bet that Iginla will be heading to the Penguins if they exit the playoffs early so I agree with some of you on hear that perhaps Selanne or Ray Whitney could be good options. Both still highly effective players that I can see having even 2 years left in the tank.
In other words. No to Jagr :nono:

11MilesPerJohan 04-12-2012 12:38 PM

Really not a Bruins type player, so to speak, but he is certainly skilled, he's a tough matchup with his size, and he would help tremendously on the power play. So I would consider it for the right price, but I don't think it would actually happen, and I'm okay with that.

translation, jagr cant use his dominating frame to lean into a stork like gill. jagr is the master of the lean and his famous arm bar as a blocking technique on the defender.

Shaun 04-12-2012 01:31 PM

Should have signed him this year instead of Pouliot.

Jerome doesn't seem like the PIT type to me, but maybe I'm wrong.

I think if the Bruins bow out in round 2-3 this year, it actually works in their favor to pick up someone like Iginla, Whitney, or Selanne next year (put Savvy on the LTIR, let go Rolston, Corvo, and Benny, and maybe you could sign all three--haha! I'm dreaming, but what a 3rd line that would be!).

On the other hand, even a SCF appearance may make older guys looking for one last run shy away--as going to the finals in 3 consecutive seasons is pretty much unheard of, no matter how good the team is.

Really--if any of those three guys are really looking to land somewhere likely to win the cup--whoever wins this year is probably off their list of destinations if they want to maximize their chances.

I should probably point out, I'm not saying that I'm not rooting for the B's to win back-to-back so they can pick up a couple of older veterans over the summer. That would be stupid.

I'm just saying that they'll have an easier time attracting those type of players if they perform well, but lose before appearing in the finals.

ToddRundgren 04-12-2012 02:52 PM

Lucic-Krejci-Seguin/Jagr
Marchand-Bergeron-Jagr/Seguin

I could deal...

I don't see it happening but it could be effective.

Not sure how this is a cut in Jagr. Gretzky always said Steve Kasper was the hardest player he ever faced. Kasper just had his number like Gill has Jagr's.

Jagr was going to certain teams and the Bruins were not one of them, nor will next year will he come to Boston.
