Jaromir Jagr confirmed the news that we all pretty much knew was coming – he won’t be back with the Bruins next season. Jagr says he won’t be back. “I don’t think I will. … Maybe if I scored 20 goals in playoffs, but I was 20 short.” #Bruins — DJ Bean (@DJ_Bean) June 26, 2013 Jagr will not return to Bruins. — Fluto Shinzawa (@GlobeFluto) June 26, 2013 Jagr was acquired by the Bruins in a trade with the Dallas Stars around the trade deadline this past season, and it was pretty well known that the forward, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent, would only be a half-season rental. The 41-year old Jagr recorded nine points (2 goals, 7 assists) in 11 regular season games with the Bruins. He tallied 8 assists in the playoffs but did not score a goal. It will be interesting to see if Jagr signs elsewhere this offseason or decides to hang up his skates for good. Either way, at least we’ll always have this memory.

  • Bring him back....The Bruins never would have gotten to the Pittsburgh series if JJ hadn't settled the puck down on the boards. Whether he scored or not is irrelevant, none of the younger 1st line players scored either, he still assisted. I really wish that a network would replay the 1st/2nd period in game 5 where JJ forced his will on Blackhawk player by pushing him into the zone with his left hand and controlling the puck with right-hand stick, very impressive. What JJ brings to the Bruins is experience, work ethic. This is a Triple-Crown Hockey Hall of Famer, you mean to tell me that you wouldn’t like to see him mentor. If he hadn’t been injured in first period, there would have been a Game 7. It is so easy for younger men reporting on this issue to say “Oh, he’s old”….that may be the case, but he is in better shape than most; and as in the case of the bedroom, experience, endurance take JJ of Sequin (who thinks he great, JJ is great). Give him one more year. This Boston fan would really like to see him come back.
