Those who have enjoyed the company of right winger Jaromir Jagr since he arrived in Philadelphia indicated that this future Hall of Famer never has been less comfortable than while he was surrounded by a handful of Pittsburgh reporters Wednesday after the Flyers practiced at Ice Castle in Castle Shannon.

Just wait until Jagr sees -- and hears -- the reception tonight from the 18,000-plus who will be at Consol Energy Center when the Penguins play host to the Flyers.

Asked what he expects from the crowd, Jagr shot back, "What kind of question is this? Everybody knows how I'm going to [be] received."
