Oh well, if there's a positive to come from this, it adds a nice little element of drama to HBO's 24/7 and the Winter Classic.
It definitely sucks. I really wish he would've signed with the Rangers (although I don't think Torts was interested) or the Penguins because those are the teams that he should be ending his career with.

I'm not going to demonize Jags, but he should've done the right thing and signed where he should never have left.

I also have absolutely no respect for Svoboda as he was telling different things to media folk in different parts of North America. He knew Jagr wanted to sign in Pittsburgh but he let it drag out way too long.
