from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, • Headed into weekend play, Jaromir Jagr had four goals in three preseason games with the Flyers. Back in the NHL after a three-year KHL tour with Omsk Avangard, the 39-year-old winger keeps cautioning everyone not to expect too much. But he still flashes those sublime talents. And he is a horse at 6 feet 2 inches and nearly 250 pounds. If he stays healthy and doesn’t tire out, the ex-Penguins superstar could still produce 30 goals and 60-80 points. If so, that will make his $3.3 million among the top bargains of the summer signings. • Mike Milbury also will not return to Good-Times-Nothing-But-Good-Times NESN. Most of his work schedule will be devoted to his NBC gigs, rumored to include a web-only show that will have him riding with Thelma and Louise. We hope. more hockey topics…
