Jagr said if he had a choice he would give up all he has here just to bring all his friends here.

He's sick of his money to a point where he'd rather gamble it away.

Jagr has more heart then most. How many of you would leave your life to go to another world and only have a stick in your hand.

I don't respect anyone that rips Jagr and his heart. He's been through more then most of you fat nerds can even imagine.
Very well said Euro. I would add that a guy don't earn all these trophies in his career without some leadership and ethic. He is in a bad mood right now after more than 10 great great years in NHL. Lafleur, Dionne, Esposito and most of great former NHLers also had to pass through hard time.
