This is like something from the mind of Vince McMahon.
Jaromir Jagr has joined the Philadelphia Flyers.
Yes. For real.
One of the most beloved players in the history of the franchise (at one time) has just joined its mortal enemy.
No word yet on the money.
EN Says: Stunning. Just stunning.
Forget all the backround with this move with regards to the rivalry between the Flyers and Penguins. What sense does this make for the Flyers?
They got rid of forward Jeff Carter and Mike Richards due in part for their chemistry issues in the locker room. So they replace them with space cadet like Jaromir Jagr?
Jagr is still capable of being a 20-goal, 60-goal threat, but this just doesn't make sense in a lot of ways.
UPDATE: Per TSN, Jagr received $3.3 million.
