    Do you know what would happen if Ovechkin went to the Rangers? D-E-A-T-H. He would be destroyed. Imagine an 18 year old kid who gets influenced by the likes of Eric Lindros and Jaromir Jagr. He would never come out of that alive.

    Jagr isn't on Fleury's level, but is damn close.

    The term clubhouse cancer is thrown around too often nowadays, but Jagr still is one of the biggest clubhouse cancers in sports.

    jagr was a lazy sack in washington and did cause problems same for lindros in philly but tell me since joining the rangers have either done one single thing that you could term them cancer like...if you claim they have please.... PLEASE provide some sort of source... they are happy where they are just like jagr back in his earlier pitt days.. would you say he was a cancer then as well???

    honestly i cant understand for the life of me all this ranger hatred on this forum.. unbelievable... it is one thing to dislike the players they already have it is another to start to say the organization will ruin a career of a player not even in the nhl

    amazing but then i have to remember it is just a kid making outlandish comments fortunately not someone that makes decisions in the nhl world (im not talking about you handsom)

    Sorry, I thought putting up with a guy for 11 years might mean a bit more than knowing a guy for 22 games.

    Jagr was always a cancer in Pittsburgh. He was never a fan favorite, his coaches hated him, and his teammates despised him.

    Jagr is an ass, about as big of one as you'll ever meet. And I know this from personal experience.

    as i asked to appease myself please show me something, anything that would indicate that.. aside from his washington days and his ending years in pittsburgh i do not recall any time where jagr was even remotely close to as bad as youre making it seem and yes your 11 years as a home town fan does have good insight but my 18 years as a fan of hockey has read numerous stories about lindros, fleury, even the great lemieux, and such as being giant egos and cancers yet i dont recall any of jagr.. yes you would have better insight then i would but thats not to say i wouldnt have any at all.. if this were in fact true i am sure i would have heard something about it before back in the days when pitt was the story of the nhl

    there isnt a chance you would a tad bitter now would there....

    Jagr and Lindros are prima donnas. That's known fact. Jagr is a loser. He has so much talent, if only he'd use it. He use to be one of the best. Then he cut his hair and lost himself. He doesn't know who he is anymore. He is lazy. If Ovechkin gets in with that crowd.....
    Everybody knows the Rangers are lazy. They have the highest payroll in the League and many big names but they just can't buy a win. Because they don't work hard. "Hard work can beat talent when talent doesn't work hard."

    You'll come to your senses soon enough.

    Why should I?

    It's f'n common knowledge, ask any Pens or Caps fan. I don't feel like looking through 4 year old Post-Gazettes.

    I'm not questioning his talent, he's an amazing player and definetly has the most skills of anyone in the league today, but I am questioning his attitude.

    rangers current payroll is 42 mill which is no where near the highest in the nhl.. i think you are confusing the rangers before they dismantled with the new look rangers which is conformed of a bunch of kids who are auditioning at 110% effort to prove they are nhl worthy..

    that is irrelevant to this topic.. we are talking about his personality in his early pitt days prior to the time where he was to be traded so cap fans imput and his level of talent wont be of much use to this discussion

    if it is so blatently obvious then why is it so difficult for you to provide one stinking source.. you can act like you dont want to but you are making such a great effort to drill it into my head, surely if you could provide the one thing that would convince me im sure you would have already

    Oh, here and there
    Jagr leaves Pens- "Thank God, finally."

    Alexei Kovalev leaves Pens- "Oh man, we'll sure miss him., =( Here's to hoping he comes back some day!"

    See that difference there? Jagr was an ass, Kovalev was a fan favorite. We were happy to see one go, the other not so much.

    Jagr's only nice to you if you're standing behind a Baccarat table.

    I'm a pens fan and aside from his last season or two here I have no idea where you are coming from. He constantly was making great plays, scoring great goals etc. Nobody hated him back then. Some yinzers just don't now how to accept a player leaving da burgh. Barry Bonds gets booed like crazy when he comes here and like Jagr he's one of the best if not the best in his sport. This city is more concerned with quotes in the paper rather than the product on the ice/field/etc. That's why Bettis is still with da stillerz, he is fat, old and slow but people like him.

    Bettis took a 4 mil paycut to stay with his old team and give them a better chance of signing FA's and winning a Super Bowl.

    Jagr demanded a trade.

    OMG THEIR SOOO COMPARIBLE!!!11

    Hopefully ovechkin won't go to the Rangers, but for them a good pick could be Schremp. It seems this kid is the cookie primadonna they lack.

    that is the impression i am getting granted as i stated above.. jagr did leave on bad terms so it is expected however i do not understand where this jagr was a cancer stemming back to his early pitt days comes from
