This is really the first "wow" of the day, considering Jagr was bound for Pittsburgh, Detroit, Omsk, Montreal... And perhaps a few other places the last 48 hours.

Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos tweeted that the Flyers paid more than the $2-million the Penguins offered (and then rescinded). If so, that's pretty much insane; Peter Laviolette just rid his dressing room of a couple of problem children, and now one of the most mercurial guys in NHL history is joining up?
