There were a lot of things I didn't like about Jagr. I hated that he simply couldn't look at a camera in an interview after a loss. Hated that he would mumble answers in defeat. Hated that in what I truly thought was going to be a special year he showed up for camp 29lbs overweight with a set of chimp-**** and a beer gut! Hated that he was simply put...Far better than just about anyone he played against on a nightly basis, but yet didn't get the job done on a nightly basis for nothing more than what I thought was lack of effort. After time I just thought that wearing the burden of the "C" on his chest was just too much for him.

At the same time in a limited role, where Jagr doesn't need to carry the team on his back I think he could be a very effective player. Granted that is w/out seeing him play for the past two seasons. Truthfully I don't think it works for the Rangers but for a team like the Pens, or maybe Chi-Town...a 39yr old Jagr just might work.
