I remember hearing reports last week or the week before that PG called Jagr's agent to say he wasn't interested. I figured when these threads still continued, that it may have been a rumor... As far as I know, they were correct, seeing I haven't heard anything about us offering him contracts.

Actually they seem pretty happy that they don't have him back. And actually I think some find it funny that the Flyers have to deal with him now. Though I guess they still need to wait and see until the season starts.

The disapointment of not getting Jagr is lessened by how he just flipped the bird to the Penguins fanbase. Well played sir.

While he would be focused on Richards, he must have his assistants focusing on other players, with preset 'maximum' contract terms that they are willing to give to that player of interest. And if they need his 'ok' they can always contact him via phone, email, text, etc. I have no idea if this is how it works but it would make sense to me.

He probably signed with the Flyers to spite the Pens for withdrawing their offer.

If you only went by what Gauthier and company released, you'd understand that they are strictly non-committal to rumors.
I agree 110%

I'm not one bit disappointed about the Habs not signing a 39 year old who hasn't played in the NHL since 2008.

Pretty amazing how every year the Flyers push so hard to win the cup. They aren't afraid to make moves.

I don't know if it's good or not, but you have to salute the balls their GM and owner have.

They certainly have their own brash style that always keeps things interesting in Flyerland.

Contrast that to the most successful franchise of the past 2 decades in Detroit who rarely make a big splash on July 1st or deadline day and focus on team stability, player development and internal growth.

Not saying that you can't win with both models, but there's something to be said for how Detroit does things.

I gotta think Pittsburgh did something jagr didn't like.

In exchange, Jagr said **** you and signed in Philly.

Brilliant Troll moment.
