  1. I agree wholeheartedly about the booing of Jagr in Pittsburgh. I don’t know if you remember or not but, when Jagr used Pittsburgh to get a higher contract in Philadelphia, Wdve ran a pretty entertaining smear campaign against him. I will always appreciate what the man has done for the team. His accomplishments far outway one year of pitting teams against one another for a higher paycheck. Wouldn’t you do the same given the opportunity in your own career? Most of us would take the money. It did hurt a little considering he chose Philth-adelphia over Pittsburgh but remember fans, we owe him more than he owes us.

    Jagr played some of the best hockey hockey in the history of the NHL right here in Pittsburgh. He didn’t start moving around untill he got older. Jagr gave Pittsburgh the prime years of his life. What more do you want from him? What more do we need Crosby, Malkin, Letang, Matta, Fleury, & Kessel.

    The fact that Philth-adelphia fans do not boo Mario is not arbitrary though. Even though their fan base is full of degenerates, they know Mario statistically was the second greatest player to grace the ice. When interviewed, Gretzky said Mario was the greatest “pure goal scorer” to ever play. My point is Jagr is not Mario, however deserves respect from every fan from any city in his own right.

    Again though Jagr is not Mario, and I wouldn’t treat them as equal. I love Jagr but he’s not Mario.

    • At first, thanks for the comment!
      No question: Jagr is not Mario. My words shall not imply that – not at all. All I wanted to say is, that Flyers fans recognized they’re watching THE greatest player to ever lace up skates & therefor applauded him, being thankful to be able to watch him playing. Jagr is in my opinion one of the top 5 players of all-time & by now the 2nd Best Penguins player of all-time. Pittsburgh’s fan base should be able to recognize that they have to show respect to such a player, just like the Flyers fans did with Mario.
