Quick question... is Jagr playing for the Czech's in the Worlds?
Thanks in advance.
Yes, I think he said himself that he'll go to represent his country for the wc's.Hejduk is injured though.
Awesome. Thanks man.
Jagr will be sentering the first line : Sykora - Jagr - Straka
He won't be taking face offs in the offensive and defensive zones though.
Which begs the question: WHY will he be playing C?
Isnt it obvious? Because of incredible back checking and defensive abilities.
I don't know why, but hokej.idnes.cz is predicting this lineup :
JÃ¡gr - Prospal - Straka
P. SÃ½kora - VÃ½bornÃ½ - HlavÃ¡č
DvořÃ¡k - ČajÃ¡nek - RučinskÃ½
HemskÃ½ - VaÅ¡Ãček - Varaďa
someone was saying jagr was playing center because it suits him better on international ice at this time in his career...he doesn't have to fly up the wing and try to beat guys to the outside, etc.
So thats why .
