Jaromir Jagr Enters New Jersey

Well I’m a die hard fan of my home state New Jersey Devils and am truly devastated by the departure of our star Ilya Kovalchuck and now I can’t say I’m too excited for the 2013-2014 hockey season. We are a team without a star, an aging star goalie, and seriously depleted of any offensive talent. Of course Devils fans have expressed any displeasure and over the off season we’ve acquired some nice pieces such as goalie Cory Schneider. Now the latest news is that we have signed Jaroimir Jagr…

Jagr spent his last season with the Boston Bruins

Jaromir Jagr is 41 years old, has played with 7 NHL teams over the course of his career, and we just gave him a one year contract where he can earn $2-4 million. I’m not a Jagr fan as he seems to play for the money over the love of the game, but this signing makes complete sense for the Devils. While Jaromir Jagr may not be on the same level as Ilya Kovalchuck at this stage of his career, he is a savy and experienced veteran winger with the occasional sparks of his brilliant play. I’m not expecting Jagr to make a huge impact on the Devils as we are a team in serious transition this year. All I can do is brace myself for a rough season ahead.
