I know it's super-naive of me at this point, but I really hope Jagr agrees to go on LTIR (or whatever) to rehab the groin and remain a Flame, even if long-term it's just a consultant role.

It's been awesome to have him. You can see the affect he's had on guys like Tkachuk and Janko already, just by talking to and working with them in practice.

Burke's comments solidify my desire to have him get a Conroy-esque type deal whereby he stays with the organization somehow...

i think Jagr was a great signing in lots of ways off the ice... its a shame that he's having troubles overcoming his injury.

i hope that he does stick around and heal up in time for a playoff run though... its always good to have a guy around the team who is so experienced...and even though it would probably take an injury to get back into the lineup right now, those things can happen.

Having him suit up for a home playoff game would be special for flames fans

Somewhat surprised to see him in town. With the Flames gone, then the week long break, if he was truly done, you'd figure he'd be gone (and to come back later to announce he's done) out of town on vacation since earlier in the week and until the break is over.

Whatever it is and how it turns out, my position clearly is that I hope he sticks it out here, rehabs the next weeks and gets to the health and fitness level the Flames had told him last week that he needs to be to get on the ice, and honestly, that he wants to as he winds down the career.

The Flames are going to need more then Bartkowski, Lazar etc as the reserves during the playoff push and playoffs even when Versteeg and Frolik get back in, and having a fit, motivated JJ available for one last playoff run, would be great.

I agree it's odd he's still hanging out in town. Weather aside.

Looks like that kid just got done ripping him a new one. Hopefully he convinced him to stick around.

I doubt Jagr would like lacrosse. No gliding when you are bagged. Maybe he'd be good at goal with his frame.

That dude on the right looks a little young to be a pro Lacrosse player...or is that just because hes next to Jagr?

According to NHL.com, Jagr is on injured reserve. Is this the first "official" word from the team/league about the situation?

Seems to be. Kristen Odland tweeted out that it was retroactive to Dec 31. Not sure what that might mean other than that JJ may stay with the team rehabbing (or collects salary?).

Jagr's IR is retroactive to Dec. 31, FYI.

He played on NYE, shouldn't it be Jan 1?

Putting a player on IR just means the player is removed from the 23 man roster limit and allows the team to put another player on the roster. Putting a player on IR means that they cannot play for 7 days from when they were put on IR

Teams can retroactively put a player on IR to the game they were injured in which is December 31st.

The Flames did not put Jagr on IR because up until now they didn't need the roster spot. Now they do and they didn't want to potentially put another player on there to allow them to call up a player.

It isn't the first official word as both Treliving and Burke have said Jagr is injured and rehabbing and injury.

So if I understand sureloss rightly then, it's a convenience to be able to carry an extra person on the roster. But why then make it retroactive? If they had an extra guy up, they'd be offside prior to the IR designation. If they didn't, what does the retroactive status achieve (say, that putting him on IR effective yesterday doesn't)?

A player put on IR cannot be activated at least 7 days from when he was put on IR.

placing a player retroactively allows you to activate the player much sooner if necessary.

Since Jagr was retroactively put on IR from December 31st, they could activate him tomorrow if they want to, otherwise they would have to wait 7 days from today.

It probably doesn't mean much in Jagr's case because I doubt he is close to coming back, but retroactive placement on IR is just a common thing for NHL teams to do when putting a player on IR.
