You won’t be seeing any Jagr salutes in orange and black next season as ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun tweeted that Jaromir Jagr has agreed to a one-year contract with the Dallas Starts to be worth roughly $4.5 million. That’s a hefty raise over the $3.3 he made in Philadelphia last season.
Jagr had a real nice season with the Flyers and gave youngsters like Claude Giroux a Hall of Fame player with the work ethic of a champion to look up to. His play throughout the regular season was surprisngly productive, 19 goals and 35 assists in 73 games played.
Whether it was a nagging injury or age catching up to him, Jagr didn’t look the same in the playoffs, looking slow at times and finishing the postseason with 1 goal and 7 helpers.
At $4.5 million, you have to wish Jagr well in Dallas and look to put whatever money you had set aside for him (a lot less than $4.5m, I’m sure) to a younger player who can step in and bring a bit more speed in the postseason. Jagr’s presence will certainly be missed though.
Get that paper, Jaromir.
