The Dallas Morning News reports the Stars have shipped winger Jaromir Jagr to the Boston Bruins.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The return is reportedly two prospects and a draft pick. Earlier today, the Stars let it be known they wouldn’t re-sign Jagr and would entertain trade offers. After losing out in the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes last week, it’s no surprise the Bruins quickly got in on this one. Though Jagr’s still capable of putting up decent numbers, some might question how well he’ll fit into the Bruins system. Still, he had little problem playing with the Flyers last season. If he can help jump-start their struggling offense down the stretch and into the playoffs, he’ll be a worthwhile rental.
**UPDATE** The Stars will receive
Matt Bartkowski, Alexander Khokhlochev and a second round pick. In other words, two-thirds of the return the Calgary Flames would’ve received had they shipped Jarome Iginla to the Bruins.
Actually, it’s Lance McDermid, Cody Payne and a conditional second round pick. I regret the error.
