Jaromir Jagr is an elite talent. He is a guaranteed Hall of Famer. He gave the Penguins and the city of Pittsburgh 11 years. We're the first to admit that we were on the Jagr Hate Train when he asked for a trade in 2001. We were in our middle-teen years at the team, filled with angst and hormones. But as time as progressed and we've seen how sports leagues and human beings operate, we've come to hold Jagr up there as one of our most favorite players of all time. It will be a crime if his contributions to the Penguins franchise are never acknowledged in the way they should be.
Here is a great laid-back interview he had with Ray Ferraro recently. WARNING: David Volek sighting.

Jaromir Jagr has been all over the hockey map, with his multiple stops in the NHL in addition to his experiences playing internationally with his native Czech Republic.
Blessed with otherworldly talents, Jagr has picked up fans all across the world, and a certain group of dedicated fans decided to honor the all-time great on Tuesday night in Calgary of all places.

Jaromir Jagr may be forty years old, but he is still as good as most 22 year-olds when out on that big slab of ice. On Wednesday night Jagr’s Dallas Stars lost 7-4 to the Calgary Flames, but in my book everyone was a winner thanks to six die-hard Jagr fans. Check out the group of six fans who put on a fitting tribute to Jaromir by each donning a former Jagr team...
A group of Jaromir Jagr fans showed up to Wednesday’s Dallas Stars-Calgary Flames games wearing mullets and replica jerseys to support the Dallas winger. The six men were wearing a Penguins, Capitals, Rangers, Flyers, Stars and Czech Republic jersey to represent the teams for whom the Hart Trophy winner has played (they didn’t have any of his KHL jerseys). Jagr treated his hardcore...

Brenden Morrow is a confident guy, but when you're a captain in the National Hockey League like No. 10 has been for the Dallas Stars since he took over the "C" from franchise icon Mike Modano a number of years ago, confidence has to be one of your strong points.
A great example of Morrow's confidence came during the Stars' highly-abbreviated training camp....
CRASS IN CALGARY
During an interview between periods, former Calgary Flames player and current Dallas Stars player Eric Nystrom was mooned by the Calgary Flames mascot. Harvey the Hound obviously felt that this was the proper way to welcome Nystrom back to Calgary, and I’m sure Nystrom thought it was funny. Unfortunately for Nystrom, his homecoming wasn’t that great, as the Flames beat the...

Vancouver looks to keep things rolling tonight as they host the surprising Dallas Stars. The Stars currently occupy the eighth seed in the West, which comes as a bit of a surprise to most people.
Before losing a run-and-gun style of game in Calgary 7-4, the Stars had been on a roll and playing...
Meet Harvey the Hound who is the mascot for the Calgary Flames. Stars player Eric Nystrom was doing an interview between periods in Wednesday nights game against the Flames when Harvey decided to drop his pants and show his world to Nystrom. No word on his reaction, but we are guessing it was a swift kick in the ass.

The Vancouver Canucks and Dallas Stars gave fans their money’s worth, and then some on Friday night. During a three second spurt during the second period, three different fights broke out and each were pretty great. The first players to dance were Ryan Garbutt and Aaron Volpatti, followed by Vernon Fiddler and Maxim Lapierre, lastly it was Eric Nystrom and Dale Weise dropping...
The Dallas Stars' four-game winning streak crashed and burned in Calgary last night, as the team got pummeled 7-4 in a game highlighted by a Michael Cammalleri hat trick. Dallas was never able to recover from a disastrous first period in which in fell behind by scores of 3-0 and 4-1.
The bottom line here is that, yet again, Glen Gulutzan's team produced a clunker in the...

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Forget about the captaincy weighing him down. Giroux's slump is more tied to the fact he has lost his two big wingers from last year - Scott Hartnell and the ageless Jaromir Jagr.
Hartnell has played only three games because of a broken left foot. Jagr, who got tired of the Flyers' putting him on hold as they waited...

The Calgary Flames got a big win last night at home against the Dallas Stars. They silenced a few critics by scoring early, and often with a final score of 7-4.
Jay Boumeester found the net on the rebound about four minutes in and it started a scoring...
