On Monday, the Kings announced that they had signed defenseman Jaromur Jagr to a one-year contract extension that will pay him $4.2 million per season.
It’s a significant increase from last year, when Jagr signed a one year deal with the Minnesota Wild.
This is a great sign for Jagr, who is entering the prime of his career and has shown he can produce in this league.
It also shows that he can get value for his salary and that his value is limited to his defensive contributions.
It should also help the Kings that they can sign Jagr as an unrestricted free agent next summer.
Jagr is an excellent defender who has been an All-Star this season, and his defensive game has improved this season.
In fact, he has the lowest shooting percentage of any defenseman in the league this season (38.4%).
His goals and assists are also up, and he has a career-high 14 goals and 12 assists.
Jagrs offensive game has also improved this year, as he has scored a career high 10 goals and 18 assists.
The Kings have a lot of defensive depth in the lineup, and they’ll be able to protect Jagr and his teammates from outside shots, as well as score on the PK.
Jagrus will be an unrestricted Free Agent next summer, and I expect the Kings to make the right move.
One of the biggest weaknesses in this Kings defense is their inability to stop the opposition’s first power play.
This year, the team has given up the second most power play goals (13) in the NHL.
When the Kings had the most power plays of any team in the last few years, it was because they were able turn those goals into wins.
Now, they’ve given up more power play goal-scoring opportunities than any other team in this entire NHL.
As a result, they have allowed a lot more power plays than any team, and have had to make some tough decisions on how to respond to those power play opportunities.
For instance, they could have had Jagr sit on the top of their blueline and let them control the neutral zone and force the opposition to play in the defensive zone.
However, they opted not to do that.
Instead, they brought in Keith Yandle and Drew Doughty, two players who are capable of generating shots on goal, to help them neutralize the power play and stop it.
They are able to neutralize a lot, and their power play success is one of the reasons why the Kings are a very good team this season and why they have the best record in the Western Conference.
Jagries defense has been a major reason why.
His average shot blocking percentage (53.1%) is the highest of any NHL defenseman, and that number will only increase next season.
Jagri’s ability to play shutdown hockey and his ability to be a physical presence on the ice makes him a great defender.
He’s not just a shutdown defenseman, he’s a physical defender.
That’s what makes him such a great defenseman.
It’s no secret that the Kings have been a lot better defensively this season than they were last year.
That doesn’t mean they’re better, but they’re at least on par with last year’s defensive numbers.
The Kings are not exactly a defensive juggernaut.
The Wild have given up a lot fewer goals than the Kings.
However, their defense is still the best in the entire NHL and they’re playing a much more physical style of hockey.
They also have two players that have developed a lot over the last year: Nicklas Grossmann and Jared Spurgeon.
Grossmann has played a big role in their success this season with the Wild.
He is third in the League with 1.9 shots per game, and the Kings defense has allowed just 1.5 goals per game.
Spurgeon is a big reason why the team is scoring more goals than they did last year because he’s leading the team in power play percentage at 60.4%.
Their offense is also up.
They have the most goals (14) in all of the NHL this season when they have a good power play (70.7%).
Their offensive game is also very good, and when they do score, it’s often thanks to a couple of big plays.
I think the Kings will be able turn this season around quickly, and it’s important that they do.
They’ve given us a glimpse of what they can be in the future.
They can be a great team next year.
