Jussi. I remember back when he was a Pen. :D
Now he's with the Blue and Orange. That's a good run in my books. He will fill the hole left by Desharnais quite nicely, I think.

Nice!

In other news, Big Leon signed with Edmonton for eight years!

Also, Jags still doesn't have a home.

You'd think Jags would've already landed somewhere, but I guess no one's willing to chance on a 45-year old. Yet.

Meanwhile, the Sharks barely beat out the Earthquakes as best fan experience in Bay Area sports:

I mean, he's not just any 45 year old, he's Jaromir Jagr, he's proved he can still go at 45 alongside the young guys who weren't even born when he won his latest Stanley Cup.

Hopefully he lands somewhere soon; won't be long before preseason gets underway.

I think he'd be an excellent fit for the Isles, and I would love to see him in an Oilers jersey. Now that Edmonton have Drai's contract all sorted out, maybe they'll look at adding some cup-winning experience to the team too.
