Krejci would like to see Jagr with B's
By James Murphy
BOSTON -- David Krejci, like the rest of the Bruins, has been basking in the glory of winning the Stanley Cup.
Krejci plans on heading to his native Czech Republic this summer and bringing the Stanley Cup with him to celebrate with family and friends. Krejci also said on Sunday that he wouldn’t mind if a Czech hockey legend came back to Boston to join him and the Bruins in their quest to repeat as Stanley Cup champions.
On Sunday, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reported that a “bunch of teams” -- including the Red Wings and Canadiens -- are expressing interest in luring Jaromir Jagr back to the NHL next season. Krejci said he would love to see his childhood idol sign with the Bruins in 2011-12.
“I would like it,” Krejci said of having the chance to be a teammate with Jagr again after playing with him for the Czech Republic in the 2010 Winter Olympics. “I know he is getting a little older but he’s such a big name and I love watching him play. So it would be nice if that happened.”
