Along with the basic mentoring abilities a successful offensive player like Jagr brings the table, Philadelphia Flyers players will benefit from the leadership of a two-time NHL captain.
Jagr knows the game, he knows what it takes to win a Stanley Cup.
He brings the right attitude to the team.
He said during training camp, “For myself… If I do bad, I do bad, but I don’t want to disappoint the guys who signed me here.” said Jagr. “That’s why I want to do good. I want to help those guys, help the team. I don’t want to disappoint the guys who believe in me. That’s what I’m nervous about.”
What is he doing to back that up?
According to Ilya Bryzgalov, Jagr was seen working out at midnight in order to keep his skills and conditioning in tune.
