Jaromir Jagr

The Devils' Jaromir Jagr is reportedly seeking a trade to an Eastern Conference contender (TSN, Feb. 10).

Jagr, who turns 43 next Sunday, is in his second year with New Jersey, with 11 goals and 18 assists this season. TSN's Darren Dreger reported Jagr has not asked Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello for a trade. But with the Devils 12 points out of a playoff berth, Dreger reported the parties may be "revisiting" the possibility next week.

Monday, Jagr demurred when asked about the possibility of a trade, telling NJ.com "I don't pay attention to the (March 2 trade) deadline." (Chere, Feb. 9).

The NHL has suspended Penguins defenseman Robert Bortuzzo two games without pay for a second-period hit on the Devils' Jaromir Jagr in New Jersey's 1-0 loss in Pittsburgh Tuesday (NHL, Dec. 3).

The NHL's video press release showed the hit and described it as "predatory", citing its lateness and the hit's direction at Jagr's head. It's the first NHL suspension for Bortuzzo (6 foot 4, 215 pounds). Jagr (6-3, 230), who did not return to the game, is not expected to miss any games as a result of the hit.

After the game, Devils coach Peter DeBoer told the AP the hit was "totally unneccessary", and that if the Pens' Sidney Crosby was hit in a similar fashion it would have resulted in "World War Four" (AP, Dec. 2).

With the first games of the Men's Olympic Hockey Tournament set to begin on Wednesday, it's time to break down the competitive field.

The Devils sent four players to Sochi, with Jaromir Jagr, Patrik Elias and Marek Zidlicky representing the Czech Republic and Damien Brunner representing the Swiss.

While the host country, Russia, s one of the favorites, the Canadian team is loaded. Of the 12 teams in the field, there are at least six teams that can make a pretty good case as to why they'll take home the gold medal.

St. Louis gets a small measure of revenge on their home ice with a shutout over a snakebitten Devils team, who could not find an answer to the perfect play of Jaroslav Halak. This one drops the Devils' record to 22-21-11 on the season.

[sny-box]- Alex Steen is having the season of a lifetime. Tonight he netted his 27th of the year on a wrister from Jaden Schwartz and David Backes in the first. As it would turn out, that goal was also the game winner.

- The dominant Blues power play that the Devils stoned last time came through in a big way tonight, with Brendan Morrow deflecting a shot from Jay Bouwmeester to break the Devils midway through the third period. On the other side of the ice, the Devils went 0/4 on their power play opportunities.

It's almost groundhog day for the Devils. It seems that every time they get to or above .500, they slip right back.

One step forward, one step back.

At some point, the Devils will need to make a move up the standings in the Metropolitan Division. Hanging around all season and perpetuating a pattern of wins and losses while gaining no ground.

2013 may go down as one of the most challenging years in the history of the New Jersey Devils. To recap some of the events:

- There was the season that started not in late 2012, but 2013, after the NHL lockout.? The Devils did so without their captain from the previous season, after Zach Parise departed for Minnesota. The 48-game slate was none to kind to the Devils, as they failed to reach the playoffs just one season after making the Stanley Cup Finals.

As far back as July and August, there was belief that the Devils would be sellers at the trade deadline.?That was certainly a realistic idea given that the team's best player had just "retired" and their other top scorer flew the coop to Canada for the duration of his career. All this after losing their captain in the summer of 2012.?We're now past the one-third mark of the season and it's fair to say that the Devils will absolutely NOT be sellers at the trade deadline.

As of Tuesday afternoon, they are one point out of a playoff spot in the Metropolitan Division.?This is a Devils team that is under .500.?That doesn't speak highly of the rest of the division and the other teams below them.?Besides the Capitals and Penguins, no other team is that much of a threat to run away with a playoff spot.?The way the team has traditionally operated, the Devils would have to be 20 points out of a playoff spot for GM Lou Lamoriello to consider having a firesale.

The other point is, they really don't have any assets to ship off.?As far as players that would actually be attractive on the trade market that the Devils would realistically part with, the only guys that come to mind are Jaromir Jagr and Michael Ryder.?And Martin Brodeur (I kid, I kid).

Not so long ago, the Devils put together a string of games that saw them post 20 goals in a seven game span, which was an average of 2.86 goals per game. Now, this team has struggled to score, tallying just four goals over their last three games, two of which have been losses.

Aside from Jaromir Jagr and more recently, Patrik Elias, and to some extent Ryan Carter, the Devils have struggled to score. With the goaltending turning in a strong performance almost every night, it's almost safe to say that two goals may get this team at least a point in more games than not. Scoring that second and even a third goal, has been a major struggle as of late.

There?s nothing like a five-game road trip over 11 days for a team to get to know each other better.? While the sky may be falling for some Devils fans, there?s more reason to believe than there is to worry.

After being shut out in the first game, they answered back with three goals on Friday.? The defense had a bunch of breakdowns on Thursday.? In Game No. 2, they played a much cleaner contest in their own third of the ice.? The special teams have been sharp as well.? The penalty kill is perfect thus far and the power play looks a lot smoother to this point in time.

Martin Brodeur has seen it all during his illustrious NHL career. From Stanley Cup victories and Vezina winning seasons, to crushing defeats. There's no doubt that this offseason was a trying one for the Devils, but Brodeur is ready to forge ahead.

"i think its a great challenge, i know I'm excited to come back and see the little puzzle that Lou put together this summer, how it's going to pan out," the 41-year-old netminder said. "We got bigger and we got some good experienced players coming in, it'll be interesting."

According to Peter May in the NY Times, Jaromir Jagr is the only player on either the Rangers or the Bruins who was alive the last time the Rangers and Bruins played in the playoffs.

Jagr was 1 year old at the time.

Jagr was acquired by the Rangers in a January 2004 trade for Anson Carter. He played 31 games for the Rangers that season and scored 15 goals and 14 assists.

Adam Rotter: Jagr has now played for the Flyers, Stars and Bruins since he returned to the NHL.

With the trade deadline only 27 hours away, the rumors, rumblings and reports are starting to really move. This one, from Renaud Lavoie of RDS officially puts a big name on the trade docket:

https://twitter.com/RenLavoieRDS/status/319108974727270400

Would Devils fans accept Jagr on the roster? Probably. But I imagine there are teams in the East willing to pay a lot more than Lou Lamoriello and judging from the Brendan Morrow deal, the Stars aren't going to give away any of their veterans. What would the cost be for Jagr? Probably a top prospect and a second-round pick or a first-round pick and a B-level prospect. The Devils could deal Jon Merrill and a second and maybe a lower-level prospect as well or possibly move Reid Boucher and multiple picks or a first rounder. That (which is purely conjecture) might get it done, but that's assuming Lou is willing to give up those assets to boost a team with multiple holes. I don't foresee anything happening and?there's no reports saying the Devils are interested -- but Jagr certainly would be a big boost to the Devils' struggling offense.

At Yahoo, Nick Cotsonika took a trip to Europe and caught up with former Ranger Jaromir Jagr who is the player/owner of his hometown team in Kladno, Czech Republic.

Jagr says that his unique position as both a player and an owner has altered how he looks at the NHL lockout.

Cotsonika writes, "He knows more because he is an owner. He also knows what he doesn't know ? that there is a lot involved with running a business and keeping the books, and that the players aren't involved with it. With a laugh, he says it is much easier to simply practice for an hour, work out and go home. "
