I will truly think about transfer to “Penguins”. Lemieux is my idol. I am ready to play for a minimal salary of $350000 for him. He had done a lot for me to become who I am right now. Therefore,
I consider it’s my debt to help him if it becomes necessary.
I'd like to point this one out, because it was talked so much recently... did Mario really ask Jagr to play for him? We know only they talked on the phone, nothing more. Really not enough to back up theory that Mario asked him to play in PIT. And the second thing... did PIT (Mario) really need Jagr's help? I don't thinks so and Jagr probably doesn't think so too. Really what would be the point if he took offer, which he didn't like for various reasons, when PIT didn't have any troubles and no need for his help?
That was just why I think these quotes are just weak argument for being harsh on Jagr because of his decision, which is what PIT fans are doing.
