Read: Jaromir Jagr Can See Both Sides In The Labor Dispute

At Yahoo, Nick Cotsonika took a trip to Europe and caught up with former Ranger Jaromir Jagr who is the player/owner of his hometown team in Kladno, Czech Republic.

Jagr says that his unique position as both a player and an owner has altered how he looks at the NHL lockout.

Cotsonika writes, “He knows more because he is an owner. He also knows what he doesn’t know – that there is a lot involved with running a business and keeping the books, and that the players aren’t involved with it. With a laugh, he says it is much easier to simply practice for an hour, work out and go home. “
