PITTSBURGH (Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN) — Darren Dreger of TSN joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to talk about “Jagr Watch.”
Darren Dreger started the conversation by saying we should all know sooner than later where Jagr will be this season, noting the fact the Penguins seem the most aggressive in acquiring the former Penguin. Dreger talked about how in-shape Jagr has gotten recently, losing 20-30 pounds which will contribute to his condition saying he would like to have him on his team.
Dreger switched to talk about Tyler Kennedy saying he would be a strong player in the unrestricted free agent market, and despite the fact he is not a “big money” guy, has shown his ability to step up and play.
Dreger said it’s possible the Pens acquire both Jagr and Kennedy, but it is also possible the Pens lose both. Darren then dropped the news that the Philadelphia Flyers have recently showed interest in Jagr.
Dreger wrapped things up talking about head shots in the NHL, saying the league needs to do more, noting the potential of enforcing a “blanket penalty” for head shots.
