Jaromir Jagr

Would any of you guys be against bringing Jagr back after he retires as some sort of coach? I don't think I've heard any of the players saying he was a bad teammate and most of the players say that he's helped them elevate their game by showing them how to be more focused on gameday and how much practicing can help.

He doesn't strike me as the coaching type.

I wouldn't be apposed to it at all but doesn't he own a Czech team or something? I doubt he'll stay here after he retires.

I'm still secretly hoping the Star are out of playoff contention come the deadline and the Flyers can pick him up for fairly cheap assuming he's healthy enough to play. This is of course if we even have a season

Nah, he'll be with Kladno for the rest of his life once he's done with the NHL. I'm sure he loves the league here but he is a legend over there, it doesn't even compare to just being another staff member of the Flyers (if he'd even choose us).

I would like it - but I do not see it happening... Had he been made an offer and stayed here this coming season, I see it as being more of a possibility. Under the circumstances, and with him owning his own team across the pond, I just don't see that happening, IMHO

he'll go back to the motherland and be a walking legend. Already owns a team I believe.

I know it's a bit of a generalization, but sports superstars typically don't make great coaches because a lot of their ability came naturally. Most good coaches seem to be major/minor league tweeners who had to fight for playing time.

Gretzky and Schmidt jump right out for coaches who struggled

guys like Bylsma, Laviolette, Manuel, Reid, and others come to mind as success stories.

Adam Oates may be the anomaly.

Rocket Richard is another example.

Yeah, he's going back.

Maybe, but borderline grinders out-number NHL legends about 1000-to-1, so that's a bit of a numbers advantage.

The grinders are also more likely to toil their way through the minor league coaching ranks and get hired on coaching merit.
