It would be nice to have Jagr to contribute some much-needed points in the Habs top six. But this is the same song and dance we hear every summer. Habs have been "close" on Shanahan, Briere, Sundin and now Jagr in the last few years. What we get instead are Smolinski, Kostopolous, Laraque and Gionta. I'd be surprised if this year "close" turns into the real thing, and I'll be equally surprised if Jagr does actually sign in Montreal and plays well enough to earn his money all year. We've just seen too many "close" players end up with other teams, and too many who sign in Montreal turning in sub-par performances. I hope this is different, but I'm not expecting much.
