Counting the Czech games, he's at 35 games already
His groin really needs to hold up
If the Stars trainers can keep Kari Lehtonen from regressing to the conditioning he had during his Thrashers days, they should have no problem with a vet like Jagr, to ensure he stays in tip top shape.
One can only hope, anyways
If you're telekinetic and you know it, clap my hands!
I wonder where those people went that were claiming that Jagr wouldn't cut it in the NHL when he came back?
They're still kicking around, they came out late last season when Jagr got injured and struggled down the stretch playing hurt albeit.
If healthy, Jagr is going to be around PPG and possiblly be close to 55-60 Pts. It's not that he was tired and slow down the stretch as much as he was playing hurt. He was 240 lbs while he's (as he said it) 220-230 lbs this season. That will help him with his skating and stamina and his ability to avoid lower body injuries.
He said on Dallas sports radio that he weighs 233 and wants to get up to 240, his playing weight last year.
Strange, Jagr is always saying something different about his weight. Just 2 months ago when he was playing in the Czech Extraliga, he shot a training video on his iPad and posted it on FB. Czech speaking fans said that in the video he himself said he was 100 kg which is basically 220 lbs. Unless he had a bountiful Christmas dinner, I don't see how he put on 13 lbs so quickly especially considering he was playing like 20-26 minutes a game over in the Czech Republic during the lockout and burning off those calories.
His face and upper body look a lot trimmer than last season.
If you look at this video, you will see Jagr looks a lot trimmer. There is a part in the video where he flexes his bicep and it looks a lot smaller than last season with the Flyers as the example here.
He looked trimmer even when he arrived to the Dallas training camp.

Jagr looked as good as I've seen him look in 7 years last night. He split the D and danced the goaltender one other time to have a third goal stolen from him by a desperation play from Zbynek Michalek. Would have had a 5 point night.
What is it with guys that have a Jagr reference in their username always seem to study his "flexing biceps" or how toned is inner thigh is?
Not singling you out livewell, just in general.
I personally don't care how he looks as long as he can play well. I was only trying to prove a point that he has shed the weight from last season. A lighter, trimmer Jagr means a faster, quicker more agile Jagr which should lead to a more successful Jagr as long as he can remain healthy.
Everyone was saying how he is too slow and too heavy for the NHL now but his weight and highlights from the Czech league during the lockout paint the opposite picture.
Back in the 90s, the freaky Penguins with Mario, Jagr, Stevens, and all those other jerks rolled my beloved Bruins in a couple Conference Finals. They won handily, too. They were far better, and it hurt.
BUT...I was a Jagr fan from the first game I saw him play, and I´m still a Jaromir fan now. I wanted the B´s to nab him when he was ready to come back to the NHL.
Guys, definitely you may not be worried about his weight. He is a true pro, his work ethic is incomparable among active players. I remember Philly players were stunned last year when they saw him training almost late at night. When he says he is ready it means 200% he is ready.
Just relax and enjoy watching him playing
