Flyers continue to channel Steinbrenner

Jaromir Jagr? The Flyers have finally rectified their mistake of drafting Mike Ricci instead of Jaromir Jagr in the 1990 draft. They've signed Jagr to a one year contract worth a reported $3.3 million.  I'm sure he's not over the hill at all (see: Paul Coffey, Tony Amonte, Peter Forsberg, et al) They've now employed at one time or another 4 of the top 5 picks of that draft..Ricci, Keith Primeau, Petr Nedved, and now Jagr, missing out only on top pick Owen Nolan (say, I wonder what he's doing nowadays?)
