A few years from now when Cherepanov is standing at center ice with the Cup in his arms, I'll be thinking of Jagr.

Watch over him for us big fella.

They don't generally wear a baseball cap in the Hockey Hall of Fame. They also aren't in color. Here's Gretzky's plaque:





The plaques feature mostly a bust with a vague top of the player's sweater. The best you might get are some strings.

I miss this guy already. I love Jagr, next to Bure he was my favorite player growing up. Kovalev is another. He's just so dynamic, he's great, it was a joy getting to watch him play here in new york. I'm very upset right now, he shouldve been given the 2 year deal, he should be here right now. Sather shouldnt have let him walk away even with us getting naslund. Just stupid. Naslund and Zherdev wont be able to replace him as much as i like those additions.

I'm just in shock right now that he really wont be there on opening night next year. Its just not right.

Well, Jagr's name is in Ranger history books for eternity - single season goal scoring and points records.

Such graceful exit. That's pretty classy. Thanks for the memories, Jaromir. Good luck where ever you choose to go.

And my gf looks so cute in Jagr's children-sized jersey. R U thinking what I'm thinking? I know, it's perverted as hell. haha

Great player and a great man. Maybe he was a priamdona or whatever years ago, but he is long past that now.

It gave me alot of pride to root for Jagr for the years he was here, the 05-06 season was amazing. Hegets just as much if not more credit than Lundqvist for that year, and who knows, if he didn't injure his shoulder, we could have gotten 2 more years just like that one.

He will be remembered by most as a Penguin and rightfully so, just wish we were able to that that next step with him.

Good luck in Russia, I'll be rooting for Osmk.

not that the pricetags were going to be the same but am i the only one who'd rather have seen #68 return instead of signing Naslund?

probably wouldn't have stayed for less money so it's moot, i suppose...
Jagr's last stint with Avangaard Omsk had him leading the RSL in scoring.. i've no doubt in my mind he'll be amongst the league's top scorers once again...

Hat's off and a BJ for JJ; F- Milbury and his shoe-polish hair dye domepiece.

It amazed me how consistent he was while he was here, how genuine and authentic he was. He was the personality of the franchise for 3 years. It's unfortunate that the chemistry experiment failed, and he was only able to click with Dubi on the first line, rather than Gomez or Dru, but what can you do? His performance in the playoffs this year was monster!

As a side note, I have family in Omsk, we are planning a trip this Christmas, including, of course a date to see Jarda on the Hawks. I saw him play in their old building during the lockout year. He benefitted from a league where there is not the hitting you see in the NHL, and even the 4th liners have a lot of skill- you don't see a lot of bruisers/role players in the KHL. It's a different game in a lot of ways, and there aren't as many games. The games themselves are not as punishing, and the goaltending is sometimes spotty. Avangard cleaned house after last year, so it should be interesting to see what they do.

Good luck Jags, thanks for everything! You truly wore the Blueshirt well. Go Hawks!

I will miss him so much, Jagr and Mario were the reason I started following hockey, as Penguin fan I must admit (). But I was still in kindergarten then so don't blame me for making one really bad decision!

I was hoping he would stay here and break the magic 700 goals, 1000 assist barrier. Good luck in Russia Jágr!

JJ's contract is up when Chere will be in his 2nd year, maybe Jagr will be like Michael Jordan and come back.

Not a single hockey fan has the right to badmouth this guy for his actions on or off the ice. He put Rangers hockey back on the map, plain and simple. However, it is time this team went in another direction. Thanks for all the memories Jags, we'll all be rooting for you in Omsk.

Lets not forget he played in every single game while he was a Ranger, never sat out injured or tired. Thats a huge feat in modern sports. Almost 300 games played?

It's going to be sad to not see #68 on the ice when the puck drops.

My favorite moment was when he was introduced as captain and he glided out of the runway emerging from the fog. For me, it was like a moment frozen in time.

I thought he carried the mantle well. The man had a regal bearing about him. Truly of the all-time greats.

What a way to go out!

Question. Since their season starts two months earlier, is it at all feasible if say Omsk were to not make the playoffs that Jagr were to come over to New York on "loan" or some other Bardin-Sather wink wink deal? After all, March-April is when Jagr turned it on so it might not be a bad time to get an extra shot in the arm around then Just a silly thought really.

Yea it is, he was really great at holding his own, you couldn't take him off the puck. After last year though, you could tell he was on the decline, and 70+ points ain't a bad way to go out on.

wasnt aware of how it worked. I assume you picked a team and had everything set up that way.

I gained a great appreciation for Jagr, once I saw the nightly beating he took, and how he NEVER dove or whined and complained. The crap that punks like Hatcher got away with against him was almost criminal, as was the lack of calls he drew. He'd get punched in the head, bear-hugged and flat out tackled while on the ice, due to the fact he was just that much a of specimen to handle. But, you'd never see the whining or complaining some players do. And, his 2005-6 season ranks as the best individual season from a Ranger since Mess 1st year, that I ever witnessed. It was not about points that year; it was his presence, and the feeling he could will the team to win. Thanks, big fella, for dragging the Rangers out of the darkness; we wouldn't be where we are today without you.

I'm so pissed at the NHL for robbing #68 of the Hart Trophy two years ago. Had he won MVP, as he rightly deserved, his option year would have triggered and he'd still be here.
