Flyers sign Jaromir Jagr - 1 year $3.3M

Per #Flyers GM Paul Holmgren: The Philadelphia Flyers have agreed to a contract with free agent RW Jaromir Jagr.

Quote:
“There’s always going to be pressure,’’ Jagr said during a media conference call Saturday. “That’s not the problem. The only thing I’m worried about is that there are a lot of people (general manager Paul Holmgren, et al) who counted on me to help them. If the things were only about myself, I’m not worried about it. If I play bad and people criticize me, that’s fine.

“But on the other side, if I play bad, people are going to criticize those people who brought me to Philadelphia. That would be tough for me. That’s the way I think. It would be tough for me because I let somebody down who believed in me. With my age (39), that’s the toughest thing. That’s the way I look at it.’’

The signing of Jagr was the centerpiece of a crazy free-agent day on Friday.

Just when you thought the Flyers couldn’t top last week’s Tumultuous Thursday, they came up with what amounted to Frantic Friday.

Quote:
"I didn't think I was going there, but after the conversation with the coaches and Chris Pronger, I started to like it," said Jagr, who had offers from the Penguins (who reportedly offered $2 million) and Red Wings, among others.

The Flyers are counting on the 6-foot-3, 240-pound Jagr to replace the production supplied by Ville Leino, who had 19 goals and 34 assists last season and signed with Buffalo on Friday.

"He plays a lot like Ville, only he's bigger," general manager Paul Holmgren said. "He holds onto the puck like Ville, makes plays out of the corner and on the cycle, and he's great on the power play."

Holmgren said Jagr, a fitness addict, would be "a good role model for the young guys."

Jagr said he liked the Flyers' makeup and their move to acquire goalie Ilya Bryzgalov. "They're not only good defensively, but they're also good offensively, and that's very important in the new style of the NHL," he said. "I'm going to have an opportunity to play a little more than [I would] with other teams."

After he signed to play in Russia three years ago, "there were very good offers from the NHL," Jagr said. "But I told myself I'm not going to look back, because I already did what I did. . . . I had already made the promise."

During recent negotiations, Jagr said he didn't tell Penguins co-owner Mario Lemieux that he would return to Pittsburgh.

"I didn't promise anybody anything, that I was going back," he said. "The Penguins seemed like I did something wrong or something bad, and I don't think I did something bad. . . .

"If I hurt somebody, I apologize, I didn't mean it, but this is my life, and I want to make the choice."

If I told you Richards and Carter were gone and Jagr signed, you would have had me committed.
