Jagr will turn 50 in February, doesn’t discover it simple any longer, and feels bad that he can’t do what he when could. Jagr has actually been the bulk owner given that 2011.

I just know that I will do my best to help the club. I don’t know if anyone can understand my role. I don’t even want to be in such a position, but I have no choice. As long as my father breathes, I take the club as my responsibility. He held it for 20 years. As a son, I would be embarrassed if I left.”
