I think both teams got what they needed. The Bruins needed scoring, so Jagr makes sense. They still pursued Morrow and Iginla first, though, so Jags is kinda like the moody, enigmatic, formerly be-mulleted consolation prize.

one thing should be very clear:

If Boston wanted Jagr over Iginla, they wouldn't have pursued Iginla as hard as they did. So any rhetoric to that effect is just that. Rhetoric. To save face. Punctuation.

Apparently the Jagr deal isn't confirmed yet.

I don't think that is fair to say. They sure did pursue Iginla hard but there have been rumors for a few days that the Bruins were after Jagr too. It just wasn't as publicized as the Iginla one.

It would be stupid to pretend that the Bruins didn't really want Iginla in the first place, but that shouldn't rule out the possibility of Boston pursing Jagr just as hard behind the scenes.

Anyway, should be a fun playoffs. Hopefully we meet in the Conference Finals and both teams get healthy. NHL isn't the NHL without Crosby.

So will the Pens game in Boston on April 19 be the most watched game of the year or what?

There will certainly be no shortage of Star-power.

Like I said, rhetoric...

I have no doubt they were interested in him, but they had a deal in place for Iggy. I'm not putting Jagr down at all, btw, I've said I think he's the better offensive player right now. You guys are getting a hell of a player. I just think, if you had Chia hooked up to some truth serum, he'd say Iginla was his first choice. I'm just basing this off nothing more than the fact that he made a trade for him plus all of the tweets I've read.

Big whoop, their loss. He's probably going to whine about not being their first choice.

To say Iginla was Boston's first choice is completely fair.

Exactly. Had the Flyers added Jagr I might have started sweating a little. He and Giroux played exceptionally well together.

Now with Jaromir Jagr to be a Bruins soon, Boston won't be a possible destination anymore for Ryane Clowe. #transactions2013

Lavoie's english is getting as bad as my french the closer we get to the deadline.

(And I'm just joking. Calm down folks! PUT THE PITCHFORKS DOWN)

Clowe will stay out West or if it's an East team i'm betting it on being the Habs

Would be perfect on the Rangers, another guy to not score any goals.

I don't believe he goes to Philadelphia; they're not making the playoffs.

Wouldn't mind seeing Clowe here but I doubt we have the pieces to make it happen.
