    Is This Guy for Real?

    Jagr's post game quotes:

    "I knew it was coming," Jagr said about the pass from Brad Marchand. "They always said, 'You've got to drive to the net,' and now I understand why they were saying that, and I never really drive to the net, now I know why. If I knew it when I was 20, I would have 100 more goals by now."

    Jagr said he barely slept the past two nights. He was extremely hard on himself in the postgame scrum after he logged 19:12 of ice time and fired five shots on goal.

    "I told them [linemates Marchand and Tyler Seguin], 'I've got to get better.' I felt bad for them they had to play with me, but I've got to get better. That's for sure," Jagr said.

     


    Unreal....talk about complete accountability for his play and high expectations.

    This guy is going to do wonders for this team in the dreesing room and on the ice.

    What a pick up!!

    In terms of attitude, I don't think you can ask for anything more.

    He was one of the best forwards on the ice last night.

    What can we expect when he has a "good" game?

    Ok...so it's been discussed ad nauseum around here, but I love having this guy play with Marchand and Seguin. Those two have been able to play and learn from one of the bests (Bergeron) when it comes to positioning and responsibility. Now Jagr comes in and amplifies that with his focus on simplifying the offensive game. It's perfect for those two.

    Re: Is This Guy for Real?

    I said this when the deal was made.  Hes having fun and is team first over self. There is a reason philly wanted him back.  Hes awesome.  His hands and hockey knowledge is top notch.  If this line plays well i have no problem with bergie centering kelly pev.  Bergie makes everyone better.  

    Im glad jagr is a bruin.  I think hes a better fit for what we needed.  Skill, leadership, ability to run a pp.  his love of the game will get these guys motivated.  I hope he comes back next year as well.

    I think we owe Shero a big thank you for taking Iginla off the table and "forcing" PC to "settle" for Jagr.

    Really.

    Yes, the team now has a new Recchi presence. (with world class skill) There is no doubt in my mind that the whole team will pick it up! (can't let an old timer show them up! (tee-hee)

    Fun stat:

    Jagr needs only 2 more gwg's to have the most all-time.

    Hope one comes tomorrow....

    I would love nothing more than for him to collect a couple of goals and the Bruins leave the Montreal in first place!

    Re: Is This Guy for Real?

    This said, and sorry to drag up more commentary on lines, but if/when Bergeron comes back it begs the question. Wouldn't Jagr have a similar impact on anyone he plays with? If Bergeron can't come back, then I think they've got it right. But if he does return, I don't want to see Jagr on the 3rd. I'd like to see 3 balanced lines each with speed, skill and net-front presence:

    Marchand-Krejci-Jagr

    Lucic-Bergeron-Seguin

    Peverly-Kelly-Horton

    Thornton-Campbell-Paille

    Daug is #13. Spooner #14. Pandawful and Caron sit.

    The answer is yes and I do agree Jagr should be playing with Krecji...

    he made some passes in front that were almost gimmee goals. Jagr may end up like Selanne in terms of being a consistent scorer late in his career. I can't be more thrilled than by getting him on the team in the Cup drive. He's that veteran presence you want in the lockerroom, the guy who can really make a difference on the PP. Recchi and Rolston were guys who make a difference in some areas, Jagr makes a profound difference on the offensive end of the ice.

    If Bergy and kelly come back and are healthy for the playoffs, By adding Jagr to the line up

    even know he is only one player it seems to change everything.

    He already is Selanne like, he's had solid numbers since his KHL return. I thought that we've missed Recchi's presence since he retired. I think Jagr finally fills that void.
