Most of the half dozen or so reporters at Jaromir Jagr's dressing area following Tuesday's practice were there for a health update, and as usual, the most accompanying player on a Flyers team filled with standup guys sat there and answered question after question in detail.

Jagr talked about how he hated missing two games with a groin injury because "at my age, it's like losing one year of your life," and accurately predicted that he'd be back in the Flyers lineup for Wednesday night's road game with the New York Islanders.
