If Mario Jr. comes back, the first time he puts the puck in the twine from Crosby......I think I might just cry.

If this happened, I would **** myself from happiness.

That said, it won't happen.

Jagr doesn't think too much of the crybaby.

Me too, it would be so beautiful. 87, 71 and 68 on the same PP would be lethal.

But he can do no wrong, can he?

I love the guy, but you portray him in a ridiculous way.

Anything to bash Crosby, I guess...

Or:

Having to play live in and play in Russia when you're already a multi-millionaire... or playing with two of the three best players in the planet back where you started your career.

pens fans will hate me for saying this, but jagr is still my 2nd favorite player ever after mario. even with his bitter departure, he gave the pens the best years of his legendary career. if this happened it would be a dream come true for me. do it mario/shero.

"I was thinking about it and if Mario would call me and say, Id like you to play for our team, I would think about it a lot, Jagr said in a telephone interview from Moscow where the Kontinental League will hold its inaugural All-Star Game outdoors at Red Square Saturday. I would play for the minimum salary. I would play for $350,000 just for him because I owe him my hockey life. I want to pay him back because he has made me what I ambesides my parents.
Pffffffffft....

Jagr will be pushing 40 by the time he is a free agent again won't he?

Crosby and Jagr would be a new kind of scary, but this is more of him indirectly voicing his interest in leaving the KHL. He wants out! Hah.

There are idiots everywhere, and it's second nature for sports fans to boo former players, especially when they left the way JJ did.

But thanks for playing.

Irish Blues: tell me what the rules are for a player in Jagr's position to return to the NHL.

The league minimum thing and the 350k are different things, there is a period between the 2. He is pretty much saying he will play for minimum, or hell even 350k.
