    I would love to see Jagr back with the Penguins. After he was injured during the marathon playoff game, had surgery during the summer, the news media got on him during the next season. The Penguins were mum about the injury, and let everyone believe he was a slackard. Yes, he shut down with the sportscasters and was said to have an “attitude”. We could use some of the excitement he brings to a game. I, for one, would see more games, and follow the Penguins more closely than I have since he left.
