The organization is good. They take care of the players. The league is good. The level of hockey here is very good, better than I expected.

So if he wasn't fine, he wasn't doing good, and he wasn't happy in the KHL, you expect him to openly say that?

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

Anything to bash Crosby, I guess...
Explain how. Jagr didn't really have much to say in those articles.

"Jagr has some choice words for Crosby"

You be the judge.

That's the title of the article, not what Jagr said. Some TSN weenie was trying to drum up traffic. The same article also said:

"Jagr also tried to remain tight-lipped when asked about the situation."

Regardless of what was said on the ice, both players had little to say about it off the ice, so I wouldn't say anybody was crying or bashing anyone.

If Jagr came back to the Pens it would just be right, somehow.

No, it wouldn't. However, it would be funny listening to and reading the posts from all the hyocrite Pens fans who have booed and bashed Jags since 2001.

Exactly. Jagr was basically wondering the same thing everyone else does.....which is if Crosby is so strong on his skates, why does he fall to the ice anytime he gets touched? Jagr was just calling Crosby out for being the diver he is.

It would also be funny watching you try to find them.

You think most of them would remain tight lipped and act like they weren't the ones doing it? No way!

It would be one more way to pile on the Pens for him, that's all.

And countless others who would refer to us as "bandwagoners," even though only a couple idiots who know nothing about hockey booed him while he was a Cap and Ranger.

Reason enough for him to stay over there, since he can't use it here.

You just never stray from the routine, do you?

Ever heard of losing an edge? Getting tangled up?

He's only willing to come back and play for league minimum because Pittsburgh will have a casino then.

That would be a great way to end a great career by Jagr, and its only fitting he pays back the man who "made him who he is today"

He should have never left, in my opinion. He belongs there, and man could they use him now.

Well... its far too nice to believe it could happen, but Jagr at a major discount for next season... that... that is at least a dream to have until its proven that it wont .

People asking why he'd play for the minimum, if he makes $14mil over 2 years in Omsk, I am pretty sure he can a season or two ONLY making hundreds of thousands of dollars...
