Video: Jaromir Jagr owns Stanley Cup finals media day

Jun 11, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

When you’ve gone 21 years between appearances in the Stanley Cup finals, it can provide you with the ability to have a lot of fun on media day. Such is the case for Boston’s Jaromir Jagr who hammed it up in a big way today.

On the mullet, the hairstyle he rocked when he played for the Penguins the last time he played in the Stanley Cup in 1992, he said it’s coming back in style.

“It’s gonna come back,” Jagr said. “In 10 years.”

As for why he had one himself?

“It was the style. I wasn’t the only one who had it! There was a lot of guys,” he said. Sure, but no one wore it the way he did.

Speaking of style, his playoff beard is lacking the gray it had during the last round. So why get rid of it?

“You’ve got to look tough.”

Check out the full video of his session with the press, it’s pretty special.

    I still hate Jagr, since 2001, but without him whose to say the Pens win the Cup in 91 & 92. Even better whose to say the 8th Seed Pens don’t upset the 1st Seed Devils in 1999 on amazing performance Jags had in that series despite playing hurt.

      Without him……..they win zip

    Forget his point contributions. Boston brought him along just to rock those mutton chops.

    21 years?? I’m feeling rather old all of a sudden….

    J.A.G.R.= Jarome Ain’t Got Rings!!

    Lol sorry I had to. How epic would it be if Jags got another ring 21 years later?

      It would be immense. Would be great to see him be the difference maker on the way to the Bruins winning the series.

    Jagr seems like such a laid back and fun guy who truly loves the game. It seems that he appreciates the opportunity Boston has given him to get back in the “big show.”

    Well Jaromir, thanks for bringing your services to Boston and here’s hoping you get to etch your name on the Cup once again. This time as a proud Bruin!

    The great thing about this series is that both teams are really talented and play the game tough. No matter who wins, it will be a great series.

    Go Bruins, but full respect to the Blackhawks.

    Would be great to see Jaromir be the difference maker in a game or two.

    Jagr is……..Pete Rose………..Moses Malone………Curt Schilling (circa Boston Sox)………The guy that is the missing piece…..

      ask nyr, wash, philly, dallas, avangard omsk about how he wasnt “the missing piece” for them. the piece can only be one man – rob scuderi.

      • laxman1944 - Jun 12, 2013 at 9:11 AM

        Sour grapes still “Pelle”……….that’s a shame.

        I’d still welcome him with open arms.

    Not sure it will get any better for this Bruins’ team than this series, and this playoff run. Might be the pinnacle of this team’s run, which began in 2008 when they took the Habs to 7 games as an 8 seed. That woke people up in New England.. I guess it depends on how the series turns out but if they win, I don’t see how it could get any better than this (the comeback against Toronto, sweeping Pitt, and now playing in the finals against another original 6 team who seems to be slightly favored.

    • nhloon - Jun 12, 2013 at 9:52 AM

      Did you even watch the 2011 run !? Other that the game 7against Toronto in 2013, 2011 was for more of a pinnacle “run.”

      Just ask the nucks !

      • nunan - Jun 12, 2013 at 10:06 AM

        obviously it wasn’t the pinnacle bc they are back in the finals…hence my saying “if they win” this has the potential to be the pinnacle of their run bc it is Chicago, an original 6 team, who is favored. 2011 was great, this has the potential to be better…and with the salary cap, players getting older, etc, who knows how long this current core of players will stick together? You can’t say 2011 was the ‘mountain top’ because that implies that things have gone downhill since then. This Bs team is still incredible though…seem to only be getting better.

    I was so hoping that Jagr would have won a game, or the series, against Pittsburgh. Just to rub it in Mario’s face.

  9. drone501 - Jun 11, 2013 at 10:27 PM

    i see the pens are still in your head. but thats okay.

  10. jacketsfan7 - Jun 12, 2013 at 7:58 AM

    Did anyone know jagrs last cup came against Chicago too?

  11. jacketsfan7 - Jun 12, 2013 at 7:59 AM

    Who’d want to rub anything in Mario’s face? Such a classy guy
