My thoughts on Jagr for Lindros and Poti...

OK so Brooks today is saying Jagr for Lindros and Poti. Here are my brief thoughts, as I sit here at work on my lunch break:

I've been surprised by Lindros, in that he's been an excellent team guy. As far as I know anyway. On the other hand, you can't really say he's our number 1 centre, can you...because he gets injured so much. The line that he was supposed to be part of (Rucinsky-Lindros-Bure) just isn't gonna happen - one third of it is in retirement, the other third has found himself a different linemate.

Now I know noone wants Jagr because of the whole money thing, but aside from that, he's a guy who can score goals, and he isn't 34 years old. And he wants to play here. And can you imagine a PP with him and Kovalev on it?

With Lindros out and Jagr in, would this mean more room for younger players, like Lundmark?

And how about Poti - not exactly setting the world on fire is he.

So in other words, my thoughts are:

If the deal is Jagr for Lindros and Poti, I wouldn't be too bothered.
