Yes, yes you read the title right Lambs. Jaromir Jagr has signed with Avangard-Omsk, a two year deal worth as much as $35 million dollars. Either that, or orders for Soviet Iron have been totaled at $35 Million over the next 2 years, and the Russian Government announced the news through the Avangard-Omsk website. The Russian Language is a finicky mistress.
Bah, who cares. As much as it would have been intersting to watch Jagr suit up for the Oil, he is old as hell. The Oil might as well sign Kevin Stevens to a 2 year deal while we are at it. Jagr played in Avangard-Omsk during the lockout and must have liked something about the long nights and the bulletproof cars. You remember the NHL lockout right? The year of hockey we all lost so that salaries wouldn’t spiral out of control?
You remember don’t you Jeff Finger? How much do you make again?
