Former Penguin Jaromir Jagr arrives in Omsk, Russia

Jaromir Jagr arrived in Russia to a welcome very similar to that of a presidential candidate.  And you know what?  I feel happy for the guy.  He played second fiddle to Lemieux, did nothing in Washington and was considered an old-timer by the time he got to New York (despite a killer 123 point season in 2005/06).  So I feel it's only right that he gets the acclaim he deserves.

Jaromir Jagr - the Russian League's version of David Beckham.

Props to Beyond the Blueshirts for the find.
