One of the concerns that fans in Philadelphia will warn Stars fans about in regards to Jaromir Jagr is that he appeared to wear down near the end of last season. He is 40, after all, and he has to battle to keep his energy high. So, with Glen Gulutzan regularly giving tons of practice days off to older players (or even erring on the side of games off for veterans), you had to wonder if Jagr might embrace a philosophy of rest to keep fresh next season. He didn't seem to buy into that strategy on a conference call with the media today.
