Pens should pull offer for Jagr

I wasn't too enthusiastic when a possible return of Jaromir Jagr started not too long ago.

I'm even less enthusiastic after the Pittsburgh Penguins offered $2 million and were expecting to hear an answer from Jagr.

Instead, no one seemed to know where Jagr was on Wednesday, the day is was supposed to decide his future.

Maybe he's trying to get more money from the Penguins or another team.

Or maybe he's being the same old Jagr.

Either way, I'm not too thrilled with the Penguins getting strung out like this by a 39-year-old primadonna.

A simple, "I'm still deciding" would have been sufficient.

We'll probably hear today, but I'd rather not see a reunion. Let some other team deal with Jagr and is baggage. I don't think it's in the Pens' best interest to sign him.

There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
