More interesting things happened yesterday than during the entire last month of the season.
From the morning until late evening, Jagr news trickled in.
 
Per Rob Rossi:
 
Svoboda said Jagr's former Penguins teammate Robert Lang was trying to establish communication via phone between Jagr and Lemieux.
 
So basically if this happens, Robert Lang will be somewhat responsible. This pleases us greatly.

Pierre Lebum also has an interesting story full of Double J quotes:
 
"In Pittsburgh, I played there 10 years. I still have a house there. I was too lazy to sell it," Jagr said with his trademark laugh. "Obviously Mario (Lemieux) is the owner. The team they got, (Sidney) Crosby and (Evgeni) Malkin, plus other great players, if I went there it would be a lot easier," added Jagr, speaking to ESPN.com via cell phone from his native Czech Republic. "But on the other side, Detroit has great players and play closer to my style, a Euro style. That's a plus. And (Nicklas) Lidstrom is there, plus (Pavel) Datsyuk and (Henrik) Zetterberg — great, great players."
 
The last quote could be very telling and damning. If the Penguins lose out on Jagr because of their grinding style, that is a shame. Jagr could also be more likely to go to Detroit based on the NHL rule that lets Red Wing players do whatever they want.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVHCDB had this to say:
 
"Hypothetically, you’re talking about a guy in his last year in the National Hockey League had 75 points. That’s leading our team last year. That’s an intriguing thing to think about. He’s a power-play guy. What you saw him do in the World Championship against NHL-caliber players was nothing short of outstanding on a bigger ice surface. Those are intriguing things to think about hypothetically. It’s tough not to think about adding 75 points to your roster if it’s something you’re capable of doing."
 
"We were having the coaches meetings and there was an article in the Russian paper about some interest on Jagr’s part in talking to the Penguins. That was about a month ago. We found that to be amusing since that wasn’t true. But it was intriguing to see that it was out there that the had said there was interest there."

The other news that broke was Jagr's heroic display in Games 6 and 7 of the 1999 series against the Devils.

You can see chicks making out in that first crowd shot.  Pure bedlam.
Jagr didn't even have a groin in these games.
And remember the Pens were an 8 seed against the 1-seed Devils.
