Jagr Respects Us!

I stumbled across this on Sportsnet a few minutes ago:

"I was pretty excited when I heard that Edmonton pushed pretty hard for me to get (there)," Jagr said Thursday at the IIHF World Hockey Championship. "I really appreciate it.

"If I ever go to (the NHL), they would be my No. 1 pick because they showed the interest first. I never forget that and I respect that."

See, who said free agents didn't want to sign in Edmonton? Oh, what? Jagr isn't technically a free agent? Well, isn't that swell. I wouldn't mind seeing Jagr here, but I wouldn't want to pay very much for him. Hopefully Tambo has other things in mind, but that was still a nice prop Mr. Jagr. Or, was Hemmer whispering things in his ear?
