So now we are laughing at other fans OF THE SAME TEAM just because they have different favourite player? Hmmm.
No, we are laughing at a person who worships a crap player in Carle who tells other people to gIve their head a shake. Jagr is old and while he's fine for the most part in the offensive zone, getting there is a big problem. If he were 10 years younger, sure, bring him back if the price is right but not at 40-41.
I would have no problem resigning him but not for what he is making no if they are attempting to make any splashes in free agency. He has already said it isn't about money for him, whether that means he would be willing to take a pay cut to stay in Philly or just doesn't want an increase I don't know, but he has proved this year so far that he still has it. He will probably finish just shy of 25 goals/60 points so hes already currently on what I would call a fair deal, but for cap reasons and all the young guys if he really wants to stay here a pay cut would probably be needed, or a two year deal to ease the hit.
Keep in mind that Jagr was not injured like 3-4 seasons in a row prior he came to Philly.
Might be right, but he wasn't playing in the NHL. There FAR MORE (FAR, FAR, FAR MORE) physical play in the NHL.
Maybe you should just realize, that the folks who said that he MIGHT be more prone to injuries coming back to the fastest, the best and the hardest league at the age of (almost) 40 COULD have a point. Just maybe.
It's weird how those excuses only apply to the Flyers.
Only Flyers players played in the Olympics? Heck I could have sworn the Hawks alone had more players in the Olympics then us
They lost in the first round.

The Bruins were one of the healthiest teams in the league last year, and the Canucks main offensive contributors barely lost any man games.
You "the organization can do no wrong" types are a joke. You can like the new young guys all you want, but sitting there and playing captain hindsight by saying "that team would never have been a contender again" because they lost in the second round is an embarrassment.

We're over it. I like Simmonds as much as the next guy. The team is still 20 points behind in the standings where they were a season ago. That "future" you speak of better be all it's cracked up to be, because this team just isn't very good. Oh, wait. We won last night. We must be cup contenders again.

Flyers play with howmany rookies? 8? and you call us a cup contender?
and Jagr blowing flyers down?
wow dude, stop taking that ****, what ever its, have a good day.. lol
I can't believe people don't want to see jagr come back next year... the guy is still one of the better players in the league and you can't deny his chemistry with Giroux. Those kids that are playing bottom minutes for one more year will still learn a lot with a guy like that on their team. Hell it will even make Giroux a better player with another year with jags.
3rd in scoring while missing 9 games and played under 5 min in couple more. Gets a lot of attention from the opponent's defence. His speed is gone but his unexpected passes are still there. All that for less money than Carle gets.
I say resign him given that:
- keeps the pace, avoids injuries and finishes the season somewhere around 60 pts
- solid performance in the playoff
- is willing (as he claims) to go under 3 mil
Next season I would put him into his usual spot on the right side during PP into the first unit and try to take advantage of him there instead of putting him into 3rd line with Briere.
