"Would someone please drive a stake through the heart of this recurring talk about the Penguins having any meaningful interest in signing Jaromir Jagr? People just won’t let it die, even though it should have years ago. The speculation rose from the grave again Thursday, when a report surfaced in Detroit that one of Jagr’s agents had contacted several NHL teams, with the Penguins being one of them, to gauge their interest in signing Jagr. Shero said last evening that he has not been contacted by anyone representing Jagr; what he didn’t have to say was that none of Jagr’s agents should waste their time making such a call, because the Penguins have no interest in buying what they have for sale. And they shouldn’t. Jagr is a surefire Hall of Famer who could be a veritable force of nature earlier in his career, but he’s also a 39-year-old who has the potential to be a disruptive force in a locker room that has developed a great synergy over the past few years."
