Jagr retires from international Hockey!!!

According to hockeyfans.ch, Jagr retired from the Czech national team.

He made the decision during the Olympix (maybe after the Ruutu hit, thank you, idiot!).

Jagr tritt aus Nationalteam zurück
Montag, 27. Februar 2006, 13:50 Uhr - Quelle: Martin Merk
Der tschechische Superstar Jaromir Jagr ist von der internationalen Eishockey-Bühne zurückgetreten. Sein Entscheid fiel während der Olympiade in Turin.
Der derzeitige NHL-Topscorer gewann mit Tschechien vor zwei Tagen Bronze und 1998 in Nagano Gold an den Olympischen Spielen. Von den fünf tschechischen Weltmeistertiteln erlebte er den letztjährigen in Wien auf dem Eis mit. Weiter machen wird der 34-Jährige dagegen in der NHL

I`m sure that the Ruutu hit had nothing to do with it, else he would retire from hockey in general.

It must be that. He got hit so baddly that he is afraid to play against Finland anymore and that's why he has to retire. You've made great conclusions

I thought he indicated this would be his last international tournament quite some time ago, but perhaps he wanted to wait until after Olympics to make a final decision.

I don't think the Ruutu hit itself had much, if any, influence on his decision. However, until the NHL (and others) through policy and enforcement makes it clear that they will not tolerate attempts to cause serious injury to ALL players, I wouldn't be surprised to see many early retirements in the future (voluntary and involuntary).

Likely an insurance issue. Under the NHL, he insured - he's probably not in international competitions. Insurance has prevented many players from competeting at the World Championships before.

It was probably my last match in the national team. Like for lots of boys," said Jagr
uh... his exact words... have been blown out of proportion.

much ado about nothing

he may be back, he may not... he even says he's more likely to play again if he plays professionally in europe in the future, which he can't see himself doing at the moment

simply honest words from a disappointed player regretting the high pressure placed on his shoulders to win

The thing about Jagr, that is so different than other international players his age, is that he probably would have been back for 2010. There would have been no question that he'd have been plenty good enough to play for the Czechs in Vancouver.

Like someone said, this by no means is a final decision. If he wants to play in 2010, he will, and he def. is good enough.

Alfie, Lidstrom, Forsberg and Sundin will probably retire from the internation scene too. They have their goldmedals now and ... well.. mission accomplished.

But this thread was about Jagr. Sad to see him quit but not very surprising.

Not shocked at all. How old is he?? 33 or 34?? Next olympics he'll be in his late 30s.
Not surprising at all.

I guess the Czech national team will be going through a rebuilding phase so now is the time to die alive.

I read a quote after the Bronze medal game from Jagr saying something to the effect that the Czech people place unrealistic expectations on their team that bringing back anything short of the Gold Medal is unacceptable and "hate them if they lose."

If this is truly the way he and others on the team feel.....I can understand the desire to retire from international competition.

I am sure Timonen, Vokoun, Zidlicky, and Erat will get a heroes welcome when they return to Nashville....it's too bad their own country can't feel the same way about them.....

This was obviously Todd Bertuzzi's fault.
