If by chance he would, I take Jagr in a heartbeat. I would say he is still top 5 in the league at controlling the puck in the offensive zone, he is just so dam strong on the puck. Even if he is not getting assists, his presence alone is just so valuable with how he draws defenders in. Plus as MR mentioned, his leadership and example in the locker room have an enormous effect on a team. Like I said, I would take him, but I think in what will most likely be his last season that he will want to sign with a contender.
This when you look at the Flyers board, the common thing you'll see is Flyers fans saying his locker room presence is the biggest asset he brought to the team, expecially very good ifluence on the young players. What more could rebuilding team ask for? Personally I think if he won the Cup this year with the Flyers, the chance of coming to play with Cervenka would become higher than it is now.
