Bring Back Jr!!

Hell why not? He'd bring some heart and emotion to this dead team! What is there to lose?

No, he would not add anything.

D is the problem.

i am not interested in bringing him back, especially at his salary

i just really miss the energy and skill he brought to the table, in his prime of the time when he was with us

What's his salary?

I thought he signed for rather cheap in Phoenix.

1.5 million, as you say rather cheap.

growing up i was a blackhawks fan so JR was my favorite player by far...that being said however, i didnt like him playing in philly and i dont think i would want him back....he is not the same JR as the mid 90's.

By all means have him back, he 'aint doing much in Phoenix, I was glad he had left them, now we have him again, if he were worth something he won't be passed around from one team to the next.

I'll take him! He's got to be better than the clowns on this roster, or at least he can't be much worse. And he does play hard, even if it to no avail anymore.

Hey look, I finally got to post 1000! (too bad most of them are completley useless, but its a benchmark nonetheless)

Always thought JR had as much talent as Sundin. Lecavalierish.

Congrats.

It's true though, even if his offensive effectiveness is very little, he still brings that fire to the team and a personality in the lockerroom that seems to be sorely lacking. He's one guy that will stand up in that room and tell you what needs to be done.

His problem has been his body is broken down from all the years of reckless play. God he was great to watch when he was younger, but all the injuries took their toll.

That being said, I'd take him back in a heartbeat. The Flyers desprately need more heart and soul players.
