    He strikes me as a better version of Fedotenko, because he looks like a threat in the regular season as well.

    Yes, the Asham resigning was a BIG plus. Jagr is already in Pittsburgh, want to know how i know this? Cause his heart is in Pittsburgh.

    Well, I don't think Jagr is going to be back.

    The Pittsburgh Penguins withdrew their one-year, $2 million contract offer to free agent Jaromir Jagr Friday morning.

    "We made what we thought was a very fair contract offer to Jaromir on Tuesday, based on his stated interest of returning to the Penguins," said Ray Shero, the team's executive vice president and general manager. "We made our best offer from the start, given our salary cap structure, in an attempt to facilitate a deal. But now, after several days, with an extended time frame for making a decision, and additional teams getting involved, we have decided to move in a different direction. It was never our intention to get involved in a free agent bidding war, and we have to focus on our team.

    "Jaromir is one of the greatest players in Penguins history, and we wish him all the best."

    Too bad, it would have been fun to watch him go out as a Pen. I have faith in Shero, we'll be fine.

    I'm disappointed to see Talbot and Rupp go, but with the young players this team has, I think it was time to move on. I love Talbot, but that contract was a bit rich for my blood. I really like Rupp, especially because he is such a pain in the *** for the opposing team, but I think he can be replaced.

    Very happy to see that TK got resigned; his speed and play are invaluable, and I think the 2 years/$4 million contract is better than I had imagined after his 20 goal season. I also really like the Steve Sullivan acquisition. The dude is a talented winger who I feel will make an impact from day one. My only concern is his health.

    It's comical to watch the Philly news here and see Superstar scoring in game 7 and holding the cup. Jagr simply wanted to be the #1 star. He woulf have had a much better chance at the cup with the Wings or Pens. But he would have had to be in the shadow of great players, I don't think he wanted that.

    I agree that Jagr wanted to be the big name, not a name in the shadow of bigger ones. Plus, $3.3 million can probably do a lot in the Czech Republic. I think that's about eight times the CR's GDP (PPP).

    Jagr's interview was such a joke. I want to play with right handed centers. Yes because Crosby, Malkin, and Zetterberg are gonna be horribly difficult to play with. lol
