They will clone him and he will play untill his clone reaches 18, in which he can retire. So its safe to say.... 2026

I'd give him 4 or 5 more seasons.

Jagr is the type of player that will be able to play at a high level for as long as he likes. Very similar to Ray Bourque.

A guy like him can put up some good points for as long as he plays (and stays motivated) but I'd be amazed if he didn't start to seriously slow down in 3 or 4 seasons.

i thought he said somewhere, that his dad said he was his strongest at the age of 37... and that he would retire after that year?

It depends on how long he stays healthy really.

Jagr has had some problems in the past with his groin and various other ailments and they started to act up even last year.

Depends on health and how long he stays interested. He's a guy who could play into his early 40's, but we'll see how the body and spirit hold up.

Thats what I heard as well, although there could be other motivating factors to make him stay. Like if in the next two or three season if they make it to the SCF but dont win, do you think he will hang up the skates without making another attempt? I doubt it, but who knows.
