I'm in the lets move away from the Jagr era camp. Sure he was great for us and especially in the playoffs, but were not going to win the Cup with the way the team is currently built (revolving around Jagr), so the sooner we move on the better, as others have said. I'd rather spend that money on bringing in guys like Campbell and Orpik, who are going to fill our needs.
I'm predicting Jagr ends up back in Pittsburgh for a bunch of reasons. Pens are gonna lose some guys, they are going to want to bring back some star power. From his standpoint, I think Jagr wants to win another Cup badly, and doing it back in Pitt would be like coming full circle. He still has a house there. He hates that fans there boo him and I think he left feeling that they got the wrong impression of him. He is still good friends with Mario. It would be the perfect way to stick it to the Rangers. Not to mention that retiring there would probably get them to raise his banner. What do you guys think?
