From Pittsburgh’s 105.9 The X’s Mark Madden:
The Penguins offered $2m. Detroit offered more.
But Philadelphia offered 30 pieces of silver. Tailor-made for a Judas.
I’ve always hated when Pittsburgh fans booed Jaromir Jagr every time he touched the puck as an opposing player. But now he’ll richly deserve it, and then some. Maybe he deserved it all along. Joining the ONE TEAM a Penguins legend should NEVER join shows how little regard he has for his Penguins legacy, and indeed for Mario Lemieux. Forget the alumni golf outing. Forget retiring No. 68. Forget all the pleasantries exchanged. Jagr is dead to me. He should be dead to you. Dead to the Penguins. Dead to Mario.
