    Too quick to tell Jagr we wont resign him?

    I know he doesnt have much left in the tank, but after the Horton news, to have him around at a discounted rate while we have a cap down year would be fine with me. Everyone, evrywhere thought hed be a great fit with Krejci all along. I wonder if Peter regrets making that statement now...

    Hey it was a nice story and he did get some nice assists but for my money he's way too old, way too slow, and really was not a very good fit.

    Not interested, Jagr has nothing left in the tank. He's not a fit in a defensive system and he's just too old. He's still great with the puck but lines would have to circle a bit to get onside when he had the puck.

    The Jagr experiment is over. Have a good retirement Jaromir.

    No, there are other FA forwards that I think would be a better fit and may also come cheaper.  Jagr was nice for the playoff run.  I don't think he's needed for an 82 game season at this point.

    He had a few good games but was mostly invisible. Too lazy to boot.

    I know I got tired of waiting for Marchand actually show up in the Finals....How does this guy get a free pass on his brutal performance? Why isn't Chiarelli calling him out over a no show performance...

    In light of Horton's imminent departure, I too, would hold on to Jagr. His work ethic is through the roof. They paid a 1st Rounder for him. They should get their money's worth and trade him at the next Trade Deadline if they are unsatisfied (or out of Playoff contention!).

    Probably because he led the team in scoring for the season and was effective in the earlier rounds and on the PK. No need for PC to tell him he had an awful finals. He knows it.

    Definitely better players, but cheaper I dont know. Lot of guys are going to command big money this year in free agency. Im just thinking from a sheer cap point and the possibility of him playing with Krejci. I feel like he got better as the playoffs went on. Next year the cap will go back up and were going to be one of the teams in a real good possition if Chiarelli can get through this years crunch. I honestly wasnt the biggest fan of him this year and thought bringing back Ryder would have been a much better fit. I definitely would have liked to see him produce more on the scoresheet thats for sure, but I think if we could have brought him back for something like 1, 1.5 mil, it would have been worth exploring.

    Cap is going down, hard to get paid this year and I don't see Jagr playing for 2 more years (although I said this back in 2008)

    he might be a good one year replacement for Horton and cheaper, plays the RW and goes to the net etc.

    good riddance, all JJ brought to the B'S was some humour....  saying that maybe had he scored twenty goals during the playoffs, the B'S might've made him an offer....

    no JJ, the B'S weren't expecting you to play like the superstar you once were but maybe had you just scored a goal or two it might've changed the final outcome....

    he's already cost the B'S a first round pick, that's enough....

    Agree completely Days. Thanks for trying JJ. I especially liked the way you could draw 2 or 3 guys to you before you'd turn the puck over. By the end of game 6 it was like you'd perfected it.

    I'd play Daug or Caron ahead of Jagr.
