Source?

All I saw was that he was going to sign in Pittsburgh for the minimum then Philly offered him a better deal and he signed there. If the money was right he would have signed.

I remember reading something last year when he came back that he only had a few teams on his list that he was going to play for. The Rangers and Pens were two of them. It was a year ago.


But I did find some stuff. I remember some article about his agent saying almost the same thing but can't find it. Maybe you're right, you offer him enough money he will come. But a 40 yr old Jagr for over 3 million....No thanks.

If he came, sure. If not, I couldn't care less.

I'd rather sign someone else, to be honest.

Bruins should sign him just because of this

Jaromir Jagr ‏ @68Jagr Close
Bryz is scared of bears. There were like 70 bears at the game! I wonder what would happen if he said he is scared of beautiful naked girls?!

I would love to see him on a line with Lucic and Krejci. I would especially aim for Jagr if Horton has any more setbacks.

If Hall Gill can shut you down and then you don't even try, why would we want a guy like that?
If there is 1 thing Jagr isn't that's lazy. He always performed and gave his best

Reminds me of another Czech player who doesn't fit the typical Bruin Mold

I think if the Bruins bow out in round 2-3 this year, it actually works in their favor to pick up someone like Iginla, Whitney, or Selanne next year (put Savvy on the LTIR, let go Rolston, Corvo, and Benny, and maybe you could sign all three--haha! I'm dreaming, but what a 3rd line that would be!).

On the other hand, even a SCF appearance may make older guys looking for one last run shy away--as going to the finals in 3 consecutive seasons is pretty much unheard of, no matter how good the team is.

Really--if any of those three guys are really looking to land somewhere likely to win the cup--whoever wins this year is probably off their list of destinations if they want to maximize their chances.

I should probably point out, I'm not saying that I'm not rooting for the B's to win back-to-back so they can pick up a couple of older veterans over the summer. That would be stupid.

I'm just saying that they'll have an easier time attracting those type of players if they perform well, but lose before appearing in the finals.
Don't get me wrong. I would absolutley love Iginla in a Bruin uniform. Guy competes and can still pot 30 + goals. Does everything well that a Bruin player should. Maybe would be enough inspiration for the Bruins to make another run next season even if we make the finals this year. Grabbing an Iginla or anyone else will still will depend on Horton.
Call me crazy but when we added Rolston at the deadline I thought it was actually a pretty smart move. I simply compared him to Recchi even though he plays on the third line but I thought as far as depth goes Pevs is an upgrade to Rex in the top six and Rolston has been dynamite with Kelly and Pouliott so I still like our chances this year to repeat IF the current squad stays healthy.
Next season I beleive Doug Hamilton will crack the line up but I think Knight and Spooner are a full season in Providence away ( best case scenerio ). So it will be good-bye to Corvo but we have a complete third line to resign. We would be crazy not to. The chemistry they have is too good to throw away.

id be interested at the right price but i cant see our right price being high enough to pull him away from giroux and philly.

much rather concentrate on scoring either Parise or Sutter.
