Jagr to Edmonton? To NY? Not HappeningFebruary 11, 2009, by
I love the rumors involving Jaromir Jagr to <.insert team here.>. Jagr is not coming to the Rangers, the Oilers, or the NHL. It’s just not happening, sorry to disappoint. He still has the rest of this season, and another season on his contract, plus an option for a third with the Omsk. Despite all the drama going on in the KHL right now, specifically with the Omsk, I don’t see Jagr leaving a possible $22+ million on the table.
More importantly, even if a team did manage to pry Jagr away from Russia, he would have to clear waivers in order to play in the NHL. Do you really think a team is going to let Jagr slip through waivers?
As for the Avery watch, Larry Brooks is reporting that Avery could be back within 10-14 days. I don’t think this should surprise anyone. I mean, he has to be on the roster by March 4 to be eligible for the playoffs.
Update: I’m going to be having a little fun with some WordPress themes I found online. So the site may change appearance a few times as I play around. Don’t be alarmed. I’m incredibly bored at work.
Update2: I’m looking for a theme with a similar color scheme, but with two sidebars (left and right, not both right). Anyone have any suggestions?
