Jagr may head to Russia

When he was with the Penguins, Jaromir Jagr was one of my favorite players. The talent that he possessed (it may still be there - somewhere under a rock) was equalled by none - save for Super Mario. But since his departure from the Pens, he's slowly transformed himself from an ultra-talented megastar to a whining, bumbling wanker.

Take today for example. Apparently the new NHL CBA is much too restrictive and limits his earning potential far too much. Jagr is slated to earn somewhere in the neighbourhood of $7.8 million (the cap max for the upcoming season), but I guess he sees that as unacceptable.

In my opinion, this guy is exactly what's wrong with pro sports today. If being limited to a measley $7.8 million requires multiple sessions with a depression specialist, then I say good riddance to ya sir.
