02:55 PM ET 04.23 | Boston Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr has no desire to sit out any of the team's remaining regular season games. Jagr stated that he gets more tired from sitting around doing nothing and would rather be an active participant in the team's remaining games. Considering Jagr is 41-years-old, some believe rest would do his body some good prior to the start of the playoffs. Jagr disagrees and prefers to play as much as possible. Currently spending a majority of his time on the third line with Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly, Jagr is comfortable with his role on the team because he receives plenty of ice time.

A couple of things. First, Tortz is one of if not the worst coach in the league. Without Lundqvist he would have been fired years ago. 2nd, the Rangers are currently in the 7th seed and have 3 very winnable games left so they'll probably be the 7th seed and face Boston or Montreal.

Makes you wonder what the Rangers could have accomplished with all their star power and goaltending had they had a coach that let them play instead of blocking shots.

Those pine boards are really hard on his old arse. Maybe they could give him a cushion to sit on.
