Jaromir Jagr was unceremoniously released from his contract with the Calgary Flames on All Star Weekend. Well, he wasn’t released exactly, he was loaned to HC Kladno in the WSM Liga in Czech Republic, which he owns. Convenient, eh? Even though a return is unlikely, it isn’t completely out of the question; he still has a (suspended) contract with Calgary. Who knows what they’ll do with it.
Today is Jaromir Jagr’s 46th birthday.
If you’re not following Zdeno Chara’s Instagram (@zeechara33), you’re missing out on an opportunity to gain insight into a player who is as mindful about life as he is about his play. Seriously, every post is fascinating, worth a read and thorough examination. Last week while on the road in New York, Zdeno Chara shot a video to wish The Jagr a happy birthday.
Ahoj Jaromir @jj68jaromirjagr, tu Zee, zdravim z New Yorku, predtym ako si lahnem pred vecernym zapasom, spominam si na Tvoje casy v NY, ked si hral za @nyrangers a hraval som proti Tebe ale aj s Tebou v @nhlbruins.

This guy, he even writes the body of the post in Czech or Slovak. So cool.
Even if you don’t have Instagram, you should just look up his IG just to read these pearls of wisdom.
Oh yeah, and since I forgot about Valentine’s Day yesterday, I’ll make it up in this way.
