Jagr Questionable for the Quarters

The Czech Republic are going to be in tough tonight, as they take on Finland in the third game of the day, because the status of Jaromir Jagr is not certain going into the match-up. Jagr took one of the hardest open-ice hits you're going to see in the last preliminary round game against the Russians, which you've probably seen a number of times already. Jagr had to leave that game and not return and then he only managed to play a little more than a period against the Latvians in the Qualification Round.

As of Wednesday morning, consider Jagr questionable and don't be surprised if he's in or out tonight... the Czechs are going to play this one close to the vest.

ImplicationsNone. Okay, that's the short version. Jagr was put in a pretty high box and I don't think anyone really wanted to test the waters with Jagr, who does have 3 points in the tournament so far. I would really begin to wonder how much of a gamble people are going to place on him if and when he re-joins the NHL.
