During a TV timeout in the 1st period today, the Penguins honored former Penguin, Capital, Ranger, Flyer, Star, Bruin, Devil, and current Panther, Jaromir Jagr, for being nominated as one of the top NHL 100 players of all-time. It was a nice gesture for the Penguins and their fans to salute the man who left Pittsburgh over 15 years ago for more money.
Don’t worry, Jags, “we salute you” even though you play musical chairs with NHL teams and even though you publicly trashed Crosby and Malkin in 2008 because you thought a duo like them weren’t capable of lifting the Stanley Cup like you and Mario Lemieux did.
Let me be the first to say, I’m completely over this Jaromir Jagr worship bullshit. Sidney Crosby recording his 10th career hat trick right in front of Jagr’s stupid face makes me feel almost at peace with the Penguins delusional decision to honor Jagr today.
It’s almost like “we salute you” for helping us win two Stanley Cups on Mario’s teams, but we’re okay with you for being a dick over the years now because we have a juggernaut of a team that’s about to go on to win it’s 3rd cup without you. #ThanksForTheMemories
P.S. – This line of Sheary – Crosby – Guentzel has been absolutely bananas lately. “Sid & The Kids” have now combined for 30 points in the past 7 games. Just a mind boggling stat. The Pens are going to be stupid scary once everyone starts getting healthy again. Although, it probably wouldn’t hurt the Pens to snag 1st place in the Metro so they can give these guys more time to heal while they dust either the Leafs or Islanders in 4 games. The end is near, folks.
