Cam Neely on Jaromir Jagr acquisition, role
April, 2, 2013
Bruins president Cam Neely was on Boston sports radio station 98.5 The Sports Hub on Tuesday afternoon and was asked about his team’s acquisition of forward Jaromir Jagr.
* What did he see in Jagr?:
“Offensively, he’s put up numbers year after year after year. He’s still doing it. He’s a big body, he protects the puck extremely well, especially inserting him into our game. … He’ll help us on the power play, so all those things combine made it fairly easy for us to try to acquire him.”
* Where does he envision Jagr playing for the Bruins?:
“It’ll be interesting to see where it shakes out. I’m sure that he will be inserted in various lines just to see where the best fit might be. Right now, [Nathan] Horton’s got it going, [David] Krejci’s played fairly well, pretty consistent throughout the year. I would assume that he may start on a different line than [the top line], but you never know how things will shake out. We’ll have 13 games after tonight, and we’ll see what makes the best fit and gives us the best chance to get production from all three lines.”
