Let's hope the habs have a new mentality that says they will spend.

When have they not spent? They've been at the cap since it was introduced.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero spoke with Jaromir Jagr’s agent around 5 p.m. today, but the team does not know if Jagr will accept a one-year offer for around $2 million to return.

Shero said Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, told him the Penguins “are very much in the mix.” Svoboda expected to speak with Jagr tonight, Shero said.

“He doesn’t want to force him into a decision,” Shero said of Svoboda.

Shero said the Penguins’ offer to Jagr remains “on the table,” and that not hearing from Jagr tonight would not alter his hope of signing Jagr when the NHL free-agent period opens tomorrow.

“He’s not holding us hostage or anything,” Shero said, adding that he believes the Penguins can sign Jagr and keep right wing Tyler Kennedy given their salary-cap space.

Shero said he never set a deadline of Wednesday for Jagr to accept an offer presented Tuesday after Shero spoke with Svoboda and Jagr.

“Petr thought the decision would be made by Wednesday; I never put a deadline on it,” Shero said. “I said that certainly us, and probably a lot of other teams, would want to know by the start of free agency – that I’d like to have an idea of what’s going on.”

You're absolutely right. what I meant was that they reached cap space signing good (not star) players. Now they need to take that one last step and spend to make this team really great. It seems they screwed a few opporunities to take that last step in the last few years imo.

Jagr would be ideal because not only does he have chemistry with Plekanec, not only would he fill a hole in our line-up, not only would he still be able to add more offense, not only would he be helpful on the PP, but he's good for one year only. Doesn't matter how much he would cost, he's done after this season.

Ideal solution for Gauthier. No long-term overpayment to a UFA in a weak market who may or may not click/produce next year, or the next one, or the next one and who would still be costly.

I knew the reason Jagr hasn't signed in Pitts yet is because he is waiting to see if we make it to part 4. And here it comes, hes gonna sign in MTL tomorrow, we just gotta get to page 4 first!

Gotta give the agent his due, he has been able to get the offers from different teams, and seems to have a bidding war started....I hate player agents, BTW....

Everyone (me included) think that he has every reason to sign with Pitts (history, playing with malkin and crosby, etc.), yet he is still reluctant to jump in the Penguins wagon and take a ride to the cup...We have to wonder why. Me think his heart his more with Montreal than people might expect . In my heart, he has already decided he'll be a hab, and he is finalizing money details before confirming anything.

People loved Kovalev when he play for now just imagine Jagr so much more talented with a great work ethic when it counts.

I can hear now the crowd on the opening game : "And now please welcome your Canadiens...Number 68 Jaromir Jaaaaaaaagrrrrrr"

For that reason alone, Molson should put pressure on Gauthier. Maybe that's the reason he's excited about tomorrow...

The reality is closer to Pittsburg won't give him more than 2 million and Montreal is willing to give him way, way more to play for them.

See the 50 second mark. I'm not so sure we want to put the guy who broke his shoulder and was out for 3 months while swiping at Gomez AND MISSING together with his nemesis...

I just hope this isn't Sundin 2.0.... So much wait for nothing (I know the situations are different and he can't sign before July 1st, but still....)

If he really wanted to come back to pittsburgh he wouldn't have give a damn about money. Choosing the habs over the pens because of money would mean he doesn't give a **** about the penguins. That's why I think it's the habs from day one. He is using the pens to make more money with the habs. He knows the hab can afford to pay more.
