Man, this would allow us to bring in a younger, more hungry..bigger d-man in Komi to help clear the crease, which we need..and it gives us more muscle up front..Jagr is very hard to get off the puck..and saku isn't. We need to get bigger, and not just that..with jagr we get bigger and more talented..and more dangerous offensively. The PP automatically improves.
Yeah we play a defensive system first, but we play this while not being able to score..so while we may hold other teams to one or 2 goals a night against us, we also score less than that..therefore we end up losing too much. With Jagr that can change.
If people dont see this as a good deal to finally acquire a star calibre player..then you're deluded. Montreal needs a jagr.
Make the deal Bob!!
I agree with you...I dont think its as bad a deal as some would lead you to believe...maybe part of the reason Koivu is coming back tonight...Washington wants to see if he's ok...
think of it this way....im no Brisebois hater but who would you rather have at this moment in time...Brisebois or Komisarek? I'd pick Komisarek personally...he has things to learn but i think at the moment he's better in the NHL if they can play him regularly.this basically leaves Koivu versus Jagr...as much as I'm a koivu fan one full year of Jagr is much better in my mind over half a year of Koivu....and thats with Jagr playing like he is right now...which i think would change...i mean Montreal has a very European feel to it and i think Jagr would love it in Montreal...that and the strip clubs..
All this for an extra 3 million in salary...which they would get back from filling in the building almost every night...Imagine a first line of Zednick-Ribeiro-Jagr.......!
By the way...i cant read Czech...how did you guys read the articles in question, do we know it actually says what was mentioned?
