...and playing with Marchand. I like Jagr quite a bit, but it's hard to cheer for him in that situation, ugh.

He does look wrong in that jersey, certainly.

So long as he brings back the 90's mullet I'm OK with it.

I am a big penguins fan and loved Jagr in the early nineties. I still like him a lot but I'll never forget the time Mario came back, Jagr wasn't the big man on the team anymore and he basically gave up in the playoffs. It was a Kobe/Shaq type of thing and Jagr handled it poorly.

There's no doubt he's one of the best to ever play the game (he used to forecheck like a mad man) and can still play at 41.

I don't mind seeing him in Boston but that's not where he belongs. He's big but not rough and tough. He would actually be better suited for the canucks.

I think most players with NTCs didn't want to go to Boston because they know it's not a classy organization. Definitely a bit of a red flag that what put off other players didn't put him off too.

I really wish we would've got Jagr and Clowe. Those two, when we're healthy, would give us arguably the deepest team in the NHL.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

What are you implying by Jagr going to Boston being a 'red flag'? The guy is at the end of his career, and has spent decades showing class and sportsmanship.

And then agrees to go to an organization that epitomizes the complete opposite of class and sportsmanship.

Are we still supposed to hate Boston?
I'm happy for Jagr, he's a good fit in Boston and he has a good chance to retire with a Cup.

Bunch of classless swine.
Lucic, Marchand, Chara, McQuaid, Campbell, Boychuck, Thornton, Bergeron, Julien...

What's to like?

Doesn't really bother me, but I'd rather have him on a different team. Whatever, not like we'll meet him in the playoffs.

This.

And yes, he's tainted now like everything that goes into Boston. He was one of my Mom's favourite players but now he's just a Bruin. Bleh.

The Bruins find it cute to auction autograph off a pictures of Lucic running Miller over. And also of Dr. Recchi sticking his finger in Lappy's face. That's some of the reason to still hate the Bruins.

I thought he looked terrible in the Montreal game, Boston can have him he's no longer a playoff player. He's not going to be able to handle the physicality and the long grind. Expect an injury

Only for the fact that my Uncle is a die-hard Bruins fan but other than that, it's good to see him there as it lends the bean town boys some extra muscle to help beat up the Pens in the playoffs, or vice versa

It's unbelievable that a guy that age has still got it. Kinda like Selanne. Every year I think this will be his last then he comes out and keeps playing. It truly is amazing. Would love the Sedins to do this haha.

Sucks that he was traded to a team like Boston...
