My head is well aware that the defenders with which a 47 year old Jaromir Jagr seamlessly split through like a fat-barreled ginsu knife are inferior in talent, and that his speed wouldn't look to match his immortal skill anywhere near as well if it were on the ice alongside NHL players.
My heart, on the other hand, doesn't really give a shit that his ability to twerk overly optimistic opponents a town over has aged out of the NHL and just wants to see him back playing in a place where the horses in his back can be appreciated on a bi-weekly basis. I get that the style with which Father Time has forced him to play doesn't quite fit the direction in which the league is trending. Still, can't we just Grandfather back in someone who would be old enough to be a Grandfather if he wasn't still sleeping with women who he could have theoretically Grandfathered had he not eternally eloped in marrying himself to the game?
Team owner or not, it just feels wrong to have Jags overseas dangling through dummies with a reach that must make them feel as helpless as getting posted up by Giannis Antetokounmpo. Especially when he should be solidifying his status as a national treasure somewhere in the states while approaching the half-century mark of 50 years young.
