My god that tweet from Penguins beat writer Jason Mackey. Couple thoughts, adding "it's unrelated to recent trade speculation" = LOL. I mean what all does an agent do when a player is traded? It's not like they have much control over the situation, especially when that player doesn't have a no trade clause. On the other hand, it just seems like to much to be a coincidence. This whole situation seems like too much to be a coincidence actually. The Jagr news breaking, then the news Kunitz wasn't happy, then Sid and Kunitz appear to argue on the bench, and now this. After Jagr plays in tonight's game for the Devils his cap hit will drop because of the way his bonuses for games played are set up. The Penguins who are close on cap would have had to wait for this day regardless. The chance is slim to none, but if the Penguins come home with Jagr after the game tonight.... my god.

January 30, 2001:
Pittsburgh Penguins - 6
Atlanta Thrashers - 3
In this match up against the Thrashers (RIP), Double J scored one goal and one assist. He took 3 shots and was on the ice for 23:48. Damian Rhodes was in net for Atlanta. Stunned Jagr didn't score 10 goals on 8 shots against that degenerate.
One thing we've noticed when looking up old games is the unreal amount of "time on ice" Jagr had during his career. 23:48 is a lot, but some of these other totals we've seen are just insane. People who say Jagr is too old need to look at these numbers. Jagr could be 68 years old and would still be in better shape than half the people in the NHL.
