I wonder how much of the Eastern European/Communist upbringing shaped his mindset. Sure the man loves his paycheck, but signing with us in 2011 would've redeemed all that went awry 10 years ago, would've cemented his legend in Pittsburgh, had his number retired, etc. Yet leaving that all on the table didn't bother him one bit, didn't cause him to bat an eyelash, like a machine that doesn't respond to emotion. His icon in Pittsburgh meant absolutely nothing to him, and that's something that will always bother me the most about Jagr.
