And Jagr was with the Pens for almost double the amount of seasons that Messier was in NY when he was forced off the team and signed with the Canucks. And Jagr was a big part of TWO cups there.

It was very classless of the majority of Penguins fans in the arena to throw Jagr under the bus and boo him every time he touched the puck. They don't deserve him back. I hope he signs with Detroit and they destroy the Pens in the finals with Jagr. They talked tons of crap about him when he was with the Caps and Rangers. Now he's "always been a Penguin" because they're desperate for anything resembling a decent winger. Embarrassing.
Especially those years when Lemieux was retired. Jaromir Jagr was the Pittsburgh Penguins. Look at Jagr's performances during 1998, 1999 and 2000. Just dominant, and eventually without the help of Ron Francis as well who signed with Carolina in summer 98. And Pittsburgh made the playoffs all three years.
