The thing with Jagr was probably made out to be bigger than it really was, but it doesn't really matter now.
You're right, but as much as I like people with Ward's personality, I think that procedurally it's not the best way of going about things, whatever his intentions were.

And I think both Jagr and Ward have tried to make it known that the papers blew everything out of proportion. The TSN draft day show noted that Ward blew off the whole Jagr-spat, saying that it was a concoction of the NY media.
