from Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Shero, who is meeting with the amateur scouting staff this week at Consol Energy Center, suggested Tuesday that Jagr won`t be courted to play for the Penguins next season and stressed that Crosby`s reported postseason setback was really just a slight “step back” along his recovery from a concussion.
On Jagr, who has talked over the past several days of resuming his NHL career, possibly with his original team: “I don`t understand where all this came from,” Shero said. “Jagr is not a guy we`ve spoken about in a couple of years. We talked about him for a little bit after his time with the Rangers (July 2008), but that`s about it.”...
Regarding Crosby, who did not play for the Penguins after Jan. 5, and has not been cleared by team doctors to resume practicing, Shero is bemusedly unfazed by that development.
“Cleared for what, to be on vacation?” Shero said. “He`s been away, out of the country on vacation, and hopefully having a good time. There`s no rush in terms of having a deadline to have him cleared for whatever. In this case the break will probably do him well.”
