Dan Bylsma Says Jaromir Jagr Is Priority

Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma may or may not have been doing homework on Jaromir Jagr’s attitude recently and the results may or may not have alleviated some concerns Penguins’ management may or may not have had about the Czech winger.

Or at least that’s what he may or may not have told Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review at the NHL Draft in Minnesota.

“If I had done homework, that’s not what I’ve heard,” Bylsma said of Jagr’s bad reputation with coaches. "I haven’t heard that from people who may or may not have played with him at the World Championships.

That player who may or may not have played with Jagr at this year’s World Championships may or may not be Zbynek Michalek.

Bylsma further went on to state, without the use of several adverbs, that Jagr was the Penguins’ priority heading towards the start of the NHL’s free agency period.

Bylsma confirmed that the “Jagr watch” is a primary issue for the Penguins and spoke at length of Jagr’s talent.

“It’s on the front burner now with July 1 coming,” he said.
