point 2, well Jagr is placed on bad position, nobody knows why, he doesnt fit there, its like Hartnell at his spot at weekend, Jagr got his shoting spot too and they doesnt let him there, we would see way more points from him if they played him corectly.
Schenn doesnt produce, he can hit with his body, i didnt see anything else from the guy, tho some can find it as good enough.
About cap money well, too bad, if Jagr will heal his groin im sure he will want to play at least 1 more year in NHL, basicly as long as he will be able and have fun he will be here.
He said he would like to be flyer, but if they dont want him, im sure there will be teams who will want him, detroit comming on my mind as they know how to take care about such players.
Whats pissing me off, ppl throwing crap at him now as he is injured and not producing due to that. month ago ppl were saying completely other way, way to be ***s.
The reason this is a discussion now is because Jagr has stated he wants to come back. And as Flyer fans, we would love to have him. So, what is stopping us? Well, there are a lot of issues with our cap right now. IMO - we have to sign Carle, we have given Coburn a raise and JVR and Schenn get significant bumps. So, unless there is a huge cap increase, I can't see where the money is coming from to sign Jagr. We don't even have enough to sign Carle, etc.
