Everyone is talking today about Jaromir Jagr and a potential rapprochement with the Penguins and the city of Pittsburgh. [Ed. note: you only get to use a word like rapprochement if you have a moniker like "Artistry."] In case you missed it, here's what Jagr did to the American team Wednesday at the ice hockey World Championships.
What a player. Will we see him on Sid's line in October? No. Sure, he would drastically improve the power play. Jagr creates odd-man opportunities when he takes a shower in the morning. But it's too unlikely. He's not a fit for the current system, and if he were to take a shift or two off in some game against Columbus in November, I think Dan Bylsma's head would explode. Still, isn't it fun to dream?
