More Jagr/Habs fodder

The New York Daily News has added fuel to the fire, suggesting that Jaromir Jagr will “likely wind up with the Canadiens.”

More here: Jagr to Habs?

My source says Jagr will end up on Skating with the Stars.  See how easy that is?

Very true, but I doubt your source would be verified by the NYDN or RDS, who have also picked up and endorsed the story.

Enough Montreal sports personalities have spoken on this for me to believe it is very true. Bottom line: the Molson family, from the sound of things, really want Jagr, and are pushing a reluctant Pierre Gauthier to sign him.

I think he would be a nice fit up there.  If he produces he will be an idol.  He could be what it takes to put the Canadiens over the top.  It lookes like they may be the next original 6 franchise to win a Cup.

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
