In the time since I put up the Jaromir Jagr poll, I completely reconfigured my living room, only to discover an emergency of the first order: the remote control now doesn’t work from the couch.
Decades from now, when I refer to my rough-and-tumble years, this is what I’ll be talking about.
Meanwhile, in the same time, more than 400 of you chimed in on what the Rangers should do with their captain. Not surprisingly, almost half of you said you wanted to see Jagr traded, while the other half were split on wanting to see Jagr finish out the year and walk, orÂ see the Rangers try to re-sign the captain at season’s end.
What does it all mean?Â Well, pretty much nothing, unless one of you happens to be Glen Sather (and by the way, if the Rangers GM is spending the precious final days before the trade deadline voting on silly blog polls, then your beloved franchise is in big trouble). But I guess it does shed a light on public sentiment.
Like I said before, I don’t see Jagr being moved unless Sather can bring in something substantial in return. The East is too close, and Jagr is still too valuable.Â Whether that means he’ll be back next season is another story.
I say a lot depends on how he finishes this season.
