I'm not really big on him either, there is only so much a 41 year old is going to be able to give you.

He's a top 20 player in NHL history, but unless he's on the third line; he's not offering much.

Jagr would make perfect sense on the third line with Lindholm. He played decent in the playoff's he just didn't get the stats to go with it, he was around the puck making plays and getting scoring chances, just didn't capitalize on them.

Tlusty - E.Staal - Semin

Skinner - J.Staal - Ruutu

Rask - Lindholm - Jagr

 

Doesn't look bad...

Ecklund from Hockey Buzz says the Hurricanes are the leaders for Jagr right now.

On 99.9 the fan, Raleigh sports radio, JR just stated that this mystery free agent is waiting patiently for a roster move to take place to free up some cap room.

 

So, who is it and how much?

It's Jagr and he probably wants 4 million when we can literally only offer him 3 million... I don't know what else he wants us to do... There's not a single roster move to make.

The problem is that he have five rfa's to resign and a draft pick to sign (assuming he makes the roster).

At this point I hope its not Jagr.  We are in over our heads against the cap.  Signing him isn't going to help.  There are better ways to spend that money.  I feel like we are already patching holes with bubble gum to stay afloat.

Jagr would be a good guy to have on the third line with possibly two rookies in Rask and Lindholm but at three million (and especially four million) dollars, it's not worth it.

 

He's a 41, not 21...

 

I'm not going to lie though... This line-up looks solid

 

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Tuomo Ruutu

Victor Rask - Elias Lindholm - Jaromir Jagr

Kevin Westgarth - Riley Nash - Patrick Dwyer

Drayson Bowman

 

Justin Faulk - Joni Pitkanen

Andrej Sekera - Tim Gleason

Mike Komisarek - Jay Harrison

Brett Bellemore

 

Cam Ward

Anton Khudobin

JR said a while ago that the door has closed on re-signing any of their UFA's.

How much is Brent asking for? Can't be equal or more to 3 or 4 mil that Jagr wants. JR is a dumbass sometimes.
