Jagr wears number 68 to commemorate the "Prague Spring" of 1968 when Soviet tanks rolled into Czechoslovakia to crush the nascent liberalization of civil liberties allowed by the Czech communist givernment.

Now Jagr is jumping from the NHL to play in Russia for $14 million tax free.
Ok first a totally different Russia and second the team is close to The Czech Republic border so it will be a home coming.


Not to mention he played there during the lockout so he's already familiar with the league. Had Sather offered a second year, even for less money per, he would've stayed.

I don't think so.
Jagr said a long time ago that after this contract he was not going to play in the NHL. He wanted to go home. He might come back but he wanted to do this. He could have gotten a two year deal somewhere else to stay in the NHL but he wanted to go home.


Not so, Jagr wanted to stay in NY all along:

Quote:
That Jagr wanted to return to the Rangers was clear from how long he held off the persistent advances of Avangard GM Anatoly Bardin, who flew to New York in April and then to the Czech Republic in June in order to personally court him. But when he and the Rangers couldn’t come close to striking a deal that satisfied either, Jagr had few options.

Not so. Jag did say that a long time ago and Sather tried to contact Jagr's agent and work out a deal but Jagr's agent wouldn't call them back.


And you know this for a fact? I know what Jagr said a long time ago and I know that those feelings aren't necessarily the same now as it was then. Every thing I've read on Weinman and Dellapina's blogs have convinced me of that. You know what, it doesn't even matter at this point. Let's just hope that Naslund can fill some pretty big shoes and better suit a team that's going in a different direction.


There is definitely spin doctoring on both parts. Jagr said that he was not going to resign after he came back from the lock out. I am sure he would have resigned if he was offered 2 years. I also believe that Rangers didn't want to sign him.


Guys, you're trying to analyze Jagr's actions while forgettng something very very important: Jaromir Jagr is absolutely, out of his mind crazy.

He's also arguably the greatest European-born player of all time. So I'd say he's crazy in a good way.
