You don’t Hate Jagr like I Hate Jagr

First things first:

I am ri-donk-ulously happy that Jagr is back in the NHL. We need as many able-bodied NHL94 vets to stay in this game as long as possible. And by “we,” I mean “I,” because these guys that were in that version of the popular EA Sports hockey rendition were my guys – when I was a youngin’.

Jagr's mullet. Circa 1994.

Not that I’m old. But for each retirement, each transfer across the pond, I feel one step closer to leaving my old, happy, drunken sober, naive college days behind. One step closer to looking up to, or really, down to, the new generations of NHlers.

As you read this, you will be treated to a glorious barrage of tweet-captures that I took as I played a game of the ol’94 tonite. Such as:

Tip-o-the-sunglasses to those sunglasses!

Crosby? Ovechkin? Is that all you got, New NHL?

Actually, every sip of Yueng brings me back to 2005-07. BW3's. Jacksonville. Fun times, and two very loud sad trombones.

Try Federov. Coffey. Bure (Pavel). Selanne (he grew up so fast).

Ledyard? Wow.

Roenik. Gilmour. Fleury. Robitaille.

Follow Frankie. Any friend of NHL94 is a friend of mine.

Modano and that punk Hull.

NHL945 You dont Hate Jagr like I Hate Jagr

Double-whammy! Yet Jagr survived.

Lemieux. Oates. LaFontaine. Mogilny.

That would be "Barrasso," for those of you that continue to live outside of 140 characters.

Messier. Gartner. Sakic.

Wood always had that "draggin' my knuckles" style of skating, but it was dang effective.

Recchi (one more year)!

NHL948 You dont Hate Jagr like I Hate Jagr

I will never tee off at Transit, or strike me dead.

Turgeon. Jagr. Yes, Jagr.

NHL949 You dont Hate Jagr like I Hate Jagr

Bettman will pay for this.

Bourque.

In your face, Gary!

Stevens.

No idea how Jagr survived this, but props to Sutty for unleashing the Kev-racken.

Iafrate. Roy.

Oh yea, and Wayne freakin’ GRETZKY. “The Magnifique.”

Always nice to see Randy Wood leading the evolutionary charge.

Nice victory, for sure. Some real high-lights in there (much of which were horrifically missed checks on #68 by my agein’ fingers). Maybe I’ll have another try, but until then:

And deal with him with "extreme prejudice."

Time to turn in, and dream of better days. And better All-Stars.

Go Sabres.

*Oh, and thank you, Mr. Lidstrom, for signing on for one more year. I say we make it one more.
