I highly doubt he wants $5,000,000 a season at 40. He got his pay day in Russia and is the highest earning player in NHL history. No team will give him $5,000,000 in the salary cap world.

I'd look to the $2- 3 million dollar range for Jagr with heavy incentives in it for games played and points. Is all we can of ford anyways.

I doubt he'd come here at 2-3 Mil after another ppg season in the KHL.

He'd sooner stay in the KHL, take home 6,7 or 8 Mil after taxes or whatever it is they'd offer him than to come to Montreal and take home 1 to 1.5 Million after taxes.

Jagr has always been after the money...

Old, out of his prime superstar rumored to be now interested in Montreal? You don't say. Shocking. That said, I'd take him just because he made use of his ass when protecting the puck like no other, I'd be entertained.

Pass on my end.

Not sure what's the obsession with old farts who can't quite cut it anymore around here.

First, half this board wanted Kovalev at the deadline, and now Jagr ? C'mon.

Anything more than that and IMO we are potentially substracting a younger player who could have a bigger more long term impact on this team. (Like AK for example, for despite all his inconsistency can be a Top 6 forward for us for years and he's not worth losing for 1 year of Jagr).
I assure you that this won't happen.

Jagr (2M) - Arnott (1M) - Kovalev (1M)

Pass, for me. A mere shell of his former self. If this was say, 15 years ago, I'd be drooling all over this.

Great idea....maybe he and Gomez can play on a line together - and if Gauthier could talk Lafleur into coming out of retirement - what a line those 3 would make.

The sad truth is that if fans are even thinking about bringing in recapped retreads ....this will tell us all how bad off this organization really is.

Habs have 4 young players to build around - Price, Subban, Max P. (if he can regain his pre-injury form and continue to develop) and maybe Eller. Unfortunately - their current list of Habs players-to-be would not strike fear into the hearts of opposing GMs or coaches.

The sad reality: The NHL’s best teams have a much better draft record than do the Canadiens, regardless of their respective order of player selection.

Acquiring Gomez, brining in players like Jagr (way past his prime) are just continued forms of the patch-job rebuild that the Habs have been attempting over the past (now) 19 years.

Why not concentrate on building a team the way the NHL's best teams have been built?

If the Habs have to start at the bottom of the league (like the Oilers are finally doing under Tambellini) in order to acquire the top end talent needed to compete with the NHL's best teams - so be it.....they are in the process of rebulding for the 19th consecutive year - why not finally do the job right?

Jagr was and still is 10x the player Kovalev is.

Even at 40 (which he isn't), Jagr would still be better than half the players on our Top 6, including our captain.

If he's willing to accept a cheap deal, I'd do it in a heart beat.

I'd sign him if he doesn want too much but that does not preclude getting rid of G-Love.
He played in the Olympics last year and he played pretty damn good, despite getting laid out by Ovechkin.

This would be a good move for PG to do. He and Emelin could be on the same flight to YUL .

Detroit is one of the best teams year in and year out and they don't tank to get themselves there. And if you could stop talking out of your ass it would be great because, believe it or not, since Timmins was hired, the Habs has one of the best recruiting and devellopement group.

Now.. trading away talent for pratically nothing, that's another story.

People are saying he's too old and yet

Robert Lang turned 38 when he played here during the 2008-2009 season and was arguably our best player that season.

Jagr turns 40 in February.


Oh, and they were born and grew up an hour from each other's home towns.

And their birthdays are 58 days apart.

Never Heard of him.

That is a TERRIBLE way of rebuilding a team. I will not be a fan of a team who sell's out a tank's for years. PG is doing a great job building the current team and making it competitive every year. The reason that we are not in the top on the East is because we always have many injuries. If you don't like the way that the Habs built their team then cheer for the Oilers or the Senators for all i care.

Agree with you on most points, although it would still be cool to see Jagr suit it up in Montreal...

Although I thought the same thing about Gomez

Btw, he would finally get his 1600th career point! What a shame that he left at 1599.

If this is all true Gomez could be shipped out and Eller could take the Number 2 Center role and have 2 veterans playing with him in Jagr and Gio.

Is it wrong of me to think that the Canadiens would possibly stoop to pay people to browse forums and spin team and organization perception?

This team smells of feces. But then again, iced poop doesn't stink.

Well lets be honest here, neither one of really knows what he wants or what he can get. That being said its highly unlikely any team will give him that amount. IF that's what he wants then he'll probably end up retiring in the KHL. But if he wants to come back to the NHL then he has to take the premier league discount. Ask Yashin about it.

Well, he's been a PPG player in the KHL, and I don't see a reason why they wouldn't offer him the same crazy money that he's making now... I believe that it's close to 10 Million, with low taxes... If I'm not mistaken. He's a big name for them to have, and is still producing.

He always went for the money, never went for less in his life... don't see why he would now. Taking 2-3 million here would be highly unlikely imo.
