The Penguins are happy to announce the signing of one of the best players of all time, Jaromir Jagr to a 1 year deal worth $1.5m. Even though he's older then dirt, his recent play shows us he can still be a viable contributor in this league. We think coming back to Pittsburgh will be a huge motivational boost and we think we will get the absolute best of Jaromir.
To : David Backes 50%
To : Karlsson (2014 draft)+J. Schultz
We had one or two better offers value wise but with one or two more spots needed to be filled in the lineup we felt we should take the offer with the best players, not necessarily the most valuable group of players.
