This sucks. I'll miss Jags.

But at least We'll get to see what we were hoping for, and that is Jags mentoring Cherepanov.

One of the all time greats - who singlehandedly made the Rangers relevant again, when lesser "greats" like Lindros failed. (Interestingly, the only other guy who had a chance to do so was a Russian, Bure, but his tenure was oh too short.) Best of luck, big fella - make sure to say NICE things about us to Cherepanov.

Jaromir going to Russia is what i felt all along.

Him not going to the Pens is HUGE.

I had believed that somehow Jagr would be back in New York even after yesterday's events, but given he's now signed with Avangard Omsk, that speculation can finally be put to rest. Funnier things have happened in sports business and I've seen it happen, that's why I had not closed the door on any scenario until now.

If you noticed, very few teams really considered signing Jagr and a lot why is what I stated (age, production and money). Given that he wasn't coming back to the Rangers and no other NHL team swooped in to sign him, he would've been an idiot to not take the Avangard Omsk offer.

Unfortunately, the Rangers will open next season in the Czech Republic without the draw of Jagr and Martin Straka for the fans there to see. But, the fact the Rangers are an Original Six high profile team should be enough for them to pack in their building and enjoy some NHL hockey.

So Jagr and Cherepanov are now on the same team?

If that goes well for them, any chance that decreases the likelihood that Cherepanov comes to NA after next season?

I think the "real" number is two years @ $7MM (tax free) with an option for a thired. The $36MM figure is what the equivalent pre-tax earnings would be in the US.

I am going to miss Jagr, very talented player. One of his best quotes was. "It is not true that Russian Hotel rooms are cold, you can open the window and they warm up to air temp right away"

Mario retired?

Pretty amusing though. You'd think they could get the # correct.

I just hope Jagr isn't stealing Cherepanov's ice time but playing on the same team will do wonders. Does Jagr speak Russian? Maybe he can help Cherepanov with his English. Not to mention generally prepare him for New York. Yell things like "you can't skate like that in New York, they will boo you!"

Good Luck hall of famer Jarrrrrrrrrrromirrrr Jagrrrrr!
