Jagr, who left the Stars' 3-2 overtime loss Thursday to the Chicago Blackhawks, missed practice Friday because of the injury. Mark Stepneski, writer for the Stars' website, wrote on Twitter that Gulutzan said rookie Reilly Smith could move into the top six to help replace Jagr.
Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
