There is no doubt the Flyers could’ve used Jaromir Jagr this
season. Peter Laviolette is still searching for consistency from his top line
on down, and the ageless one has looked pretty good particularly during a
shortened season, posting 26 points through 34 games for the Dallas Stars.
There was even talk of Paul Holmgren swinging a trade for
Jagr, something some of the guys in the dressing room were pushing for. Alas,
it’s too late. The Boston Bruins reached a deal on Tuesday to acquire the
nine-time All Star from Dallas.
The price tag was not cheap. Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning
News is hearing Boston paid two prospects and a draft pick for the 41-year-old
winger’s services. In their case, with the playoffs already a foregone
conclusion and a team that is ready to contend for the Cup, that might be well
spent. Jagr is a free agent at season’s end, but the Bruins are also in a
position to pay him at the end of the year.
Among the Flyers who will be none too pleased by the
development is Scott Hartnell, who the Inq’s Sam Carchidi tells us lobbied hard
for Homer to re-acquire Jagr. Hartsy said it would be good for team chemistry,
and of course he’s not too bad at this hockey thing, either.
A shame they let Jagr leave via free agency in the first
place, but $4.5 million seemed a lot at the time for a guy who looked significantly
slower as last season progressed. At this juncture, it does not look like a
reunion is ever going to be likely.
