I think Colorado will finish 7-9 next year. West is getting weaker if anything. Colorado made the playoffs two years ago and were unhealthy last year. Varlamov finally gets the starting job he wants and proved to be lethal in it when he destroyed the Rangers two years ago.
He's got a special place in all our hearts. That shouldn't make him exempt from being boo'd now that he's a Flyer. I'd boo Mark Messier if he was a Flyer or Devil. Jagr has 3.3 million reasons to deal with the booing. He got boo'd in Pittsburgh as a Cap and Ranger. He knew what he was getting into when he signed with Philthy. He deserves all the flack he gets. He's one of the greatest all-time players. That doesn't change the fact that I loathe everything Flyers. So for the next year, I will hate Jagr the Flyer.
Not only will I not boo him, but I'll be at the Garden and cheer him when the flyers visit.
