A Jagr Christmas, 2015 style: Getting four new teeth, giving a really big TV

It’s the Christmas season around the world. For Jaromir Jagr Christmas 2015 means getting four new teeth. For the team he grew up playing for and now owns, it means he is giving them a really, big TV, in this case a four-sided jumbotron!
This was discovered on the facebook page of the Rytiri Kladno page. Below the picture  dozens of fans shared their gratitude. While the comments are mostly in Czech, your translation function will enable you to read them.
Here’s a Christmas related video involving Jagr that also includes rarely-seen KHL footage:
SUNRISE, FL–The NHL is on break and the Florida Panthers have no team-mandated workouts until Saturday morning, so fresh news and injury updates as well as the results of Jaromir Jagr’s new teeth  will be hard to discover unless Jagr tweets out something himself.
Still, jagrometer.com pulled together some content for you today. The Panthers Christmas meal will taste even better on the heels of a five-game winning streak that is part of a 11-3-0 run by Florida. Of recent  historical note, Jagr has both tied and passed Marcel Dionne and is fourth on the all-time goals scored list (732) with a few more benchmarks to achieve in 2016.
They rarely played in the same game but that doesn’t mean they didn’t become friends in two decades  on the international stage of hockey.  The Finnish Flash Teemu Selanne is retired but follows and comments on things Jagr-related.
When Jagr said he appreciated the fan’s  votes but would rather not play and leave the 3-on-3 NHL All-Star game to younger players, Selanne made him soften his stance. It’s a good thing because with less than a week of voting, Jagr is still the leading vote getter in the Atlantic Division and would be captain if selected and he participates.
 Following the on-ice dental work in Tuesday’s win over Ottawa, Selanne sent this message to Jagr via twitter.

sorry about your teeth but now you finally look like a hockey player!!! You may lose you teeth but not your smile 👏👏👏-passion👍💪

would you like to sign my petition for a Jagr/Selanne reality show

Lots of takers on that one already.

The latest version of Jagr’s smile is due out any day now. Upset fans should follow the example of the sportsman Jagr and not hold grudges a

gainst Alex Chiasson, his former teammate in Dallas.


Found another story to share that declares Jagr to be the people’s champ and you won’t get any argument from Jagrometer.com. Well done.
Obviously no changes until Sunday night, but here’s the latest Jagr-O-Meter:
and the Atlantic Division standings…The Bruins and Panthers both have 42 points, but Boston has played two fewer games and is listed in second place.
Expanded Atlantic Division Standings

The NHL resumes play Dec. 26 and Jagr and the Panthers host Columbus, Dec. 27 at BB&T Center. Tickets and special fan packages available at jagrometer.com.

We won’t have much tomorrow but I’m sure you’ll like it when you’ve stuffed yourself with family togetherness and need a break.

Another good facebook page is one produced by someone in the Czech Republic. It has more than 100,000 likes. This is not the official page, but it is very good.

@68isgr8  is the twitter for The Traveling Jagrs. Clad in different Jagr jerseys and hair styles from 68’s career, they gained league-wide recognition when they caught Jagr’s attention during a pre-game skate of a Dallas Stars game in Canada during the 2012-2013 season. Since then, they convene at games in Western Canada and make a road trip or two every year, playing street hockey with locals, posing for hundreds of pictures, and having a good time with fans while honoring an all-time NHL legend.
