Obviously with wings like Miroslav "Bobby Hull" Satan and Pascal "Robitaille" Dupuis, Shero would never make this move. Remember, you could throw Bob Errey out there right now with Crosby and he'd score 50 just because Crosby would throw the puck off his ass and in to the net all year.
It's a shame that Jagr isn't given more credit for keeping the franchise in Pittsburgh. From 1995-2001 he's the one who kept the franchise relevant and kept people coming to the Mellon every night. It seems like Mario and Crosby are the only two who get recognition.
Jagr is the 2nd greatest Penguin of all time and I loved him even when he was playing for the Rangers and Caps. He did so many great things for the Penguins franchise.
It would be one more way to pile on the Pens for him, that's all.
And countless others who would refer to us as "bandwagoners," even though only a couple idiots who know nothing about hockey booed him while he was a Cap and Ranger.
I really dont like calling some Pens fans "idiots" for booing Jagr. There were plenty of them. I live in DC and believe me the boos poored when the Pens visted Jagr in Washington. Jagr left in a terrible way. If you have problems with Mario, you have problems with Pittsburgh. I wouldn't call fans "idiots" for showing their distaste for him. They were getting in Jagr's head. Personally, I would like to see him back in Pittsburgh as a player. He really is a gifted hockey player but when he started thinking he was bigger than Mario.... well thats the beginning of your problem
