All this hullabaloo about the Collective Bargaining Agreement has helped obscure some of next season's most significant storylines. Like, for example, the fact that Jaromir Jagr is in the Western Conference and will play for the Dallas Stars.
Nope. Still does. Not. Compute. (Full Gallery Here.)
Jagr visited the offices of Sport in the Czech Republic, holding a video chat with some lucky readers and strapping on a Dallas Stars sweater for perhaps the first time. Wrote Jagr on Twitter: "Me in a Dallas Stars jersey for the first time! An old one but a good one. Got it in the Sport newsroom I visited."
As Jagr pointed out, apparently the news hasn't hit Eastern Europe yet that (a) the NHL doesn't wear Koho and (b) the Stars haven't worn this style of jersey since 2007.
So yes, technically, this is Jaromir Jagr posing in a Dallas Stars jersey for the first time. It's just a little more "Stu Barnes" than "Jamie Benn."
