Jaromir Jagr?February 17, 2010, by
Right then guys, slightly off the Olympic topic….
If you’re like me, thanks to his time in NY you’ll have a soft spot for Jaromir Jagr, the big Czech.
Im sure many of you have read the THN column discussing the notion of Jagr coming back to the NHL. If he does, where do you think he’ll go? If he comes back should The Rangers be interested and can he still help them?
Right now, he’s playing at around a point per game pace in the KHL. He’s also apparently in supreme condition (according to ex Omsk coach Wayne Fleming…) For the record I think (at a reasonable price) he could be huge for the Rangers. He doesnt need to be the go-to-guy anymore thanks to Gaborik. He seems willing to take a small(er) salary to play so the Rangers should be interested.
I really like the idea of a second line featuring Avery and Jagr flanking perhaps Dubinsky. Finally some genuine secondary scoring?
I had a look in more depth at the idea at nasports.co.uk. Let me know what you think.
