Calgary Flames fans - and most likely players - were hopeful to see future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr take part in tonight's home opener against the Winnipeg Jets. But everyone will still have to wait.
However, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan mentioned something that is doomed to worry fans at this point. While announcing that Jagr would not be in the lineup tonight, Gulutzan explained his absence by saying that "this was only Day 2 of his training camp."
Are fans supposed to understand that we won't see Jagr in action for several more weeks?
Teammates have mentioned that Jagr looks ready and remains in great shape, but coach's comments might tint at a longer wait for the hockey world.
