Jagr isn’t worried about skipping the preseason

Sep 26, 2013, 9:09 PM EDT

The New Jersey Devils’ final preseason game is going on right now, but Jaromir Jagr isn’t playing thanks to his lingering soreness. The good news is that he told the team’s Web site he could play Thursday if it was a regular season game and doesn’t believe that missed time will hurt him.

(Jagr’s entertaining in goofy giggle mode, isn’t he?)

Anyway, the 41-year-old seems confident that he’ll adjust, even if he admits that the speed of the season’s first meaningful game might be overwhelming.

He hasn’t had much trouble adapting to new locales and teammates yet, so we shall see.

    so what’s so funny? taking a job away from a young kid who has paid his dues just because of your past accomplishments ? and does the BIG PICTURE include earning your big payroll ?

    send this guy to the AHL for some ” CONDITIONING” like you would a younger guy who sat out the preseason . i’m sure he’d get some reason for …stiffness !
