REPORT: JAGR'S AGENT REACHING OUT TO NHL TEAMS

After three seasons in the KHL, Jaromir Jagr could be ready to return to the National Hockey League.

According to reports on MLive.com and the Detroit Free Press on Thursday, Jagr's agent Petr Svoboda has put out feelers to five NHL teams - the Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens - about the possibility of the future Hall of Famer signing on as a free agent.

Jagr has not played in the NHL since 2007-08, opting to join Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League. He scored 19 goals and 50 points in 49 games last season.

The 39-year-old established himself as one of the NHL's premier talents during the 1990's, winning Stanley Cups with the Penguins in each of his first two seasons and capturing the Hart Trophy in 1999.

The five-time Art Ross Trophy winner has 646 goals and 1,599 points in 17 NHL seasons with Pittsburgh, Washington and the Rangers.

They played really poorly together in NYR actually. Although maybe you were being facetious...

Interesting, I didnt know that Svoboda was Jagr's agent. That may give the habs another (slight) leg up, as well as the pleky connection as Svoboda played (arguably) his best nhl seasons with the habs. 8 years, a cup - he knows what the city is like & could be helpful if Jagr is on the bubble.

Well, if he played poorly with Jagr in NY, maybe we could bury him in Hamilton.

Never thought of that,,,,,but yea,,,it might help. :)

I think with Jagr, he'd be a good asset to play with Plekanec and Cammalleri, allowing Pacioretty-Gomez-Gionta to remain the second line, and we could have a badass AK-Eller-Moen third line. Jagr, I'd only want him on a one year deal, perhaps with a club option for two. He'd be a good fill in to help us maybe make some noise in the playoffs next year, but obviously isn't going to be a core member of the team, given his age.

Who needs Jagr when you have Moen in your top six?

According to Eklund, it's almost certain he'll sign here. :P

I guess we better forget about the possibility of him signing here then ;)

Damn. yeah I saw that. Guess it means its unlikely he's even considering montreal now! :lol:

On Jagr' date=' it really looks like a strong bet the Canadiens will be landing Jaromir Jagr. Put it this way, there are people I trust who are convinced of this scenario, and were long before official word came out that his Russian team couldn't afford him[/quote']

of course he also goes on to say that Markov will likely sign in Toronto to play with Komisarek (?!?)

Ah well, at least his site is always good for a chuckle.

Actually, according to espn.com, Svoboda has talked to Montreal and Detroit about Jagr, with a handful of other teams making phone calls after they found out he was on the market. Svoboda also stated that the Pens are NOT one of the teams who have interest in Jagr...

So it all sounds semi promising. Detroit may be able to throw alittle bit more money at him, but it all depends on where he wants to play. As Svoboda stated, "hopefully we will have a better idea tomorrow." Hopefully we don't have to wait too long.

Detroit may be able to throw a little bit more money at him, but it all depends on where he wants to play.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland confirmed his team was in the mix.

"We have been contacted and we have interest. We're exploring our interest," Holland told ESPN.com Friday.

Holland did not elaborate, but salary-cap implications are at play here. With the retirement of Brian Rafalski and the cap going up again for next season, the Red Wings could have as much as $10 million to play with.

Svoboda, meanwhile, said Pittsburgh was not among the teams he had spoken with as of Friday morning. The agent said if Jagr does sign with an NHL club, it would be for only a one-year deal.

"I just want to make sure it's the right fit," Svoboda said. "He's played really well the last few years in Russia. I think he's got a lot left."

Well Markov does have his Canadian citizenship and Burke would like nothing better than to steal one away from the Habs as arch rivals... a reach to be sure ;)

PG was quoted (not sure if it was correctly though) that he wanted to make a big splach this year... would J. Jagr qualify? Could be... in a small puddle perhaps :lol:

Don't get me wrong signing Jagr could/would be a positive move IMO... but a big splash... meh!

I hope he chooses us over Detorit, mainly that he said he wants to play in Canada. Oh I am sure Burke is doing his best to get him to play for them, that'd be funny.

I just don't see Jagr fitting in Detroit, they seem to be pretty good in terms of Forwards, why would they bring in Jagr. Especially the fact that their all old, what if he ruined the chemistry...?

Svoboda said Jagr is only looking for a one-year deal...

One thing that the Rangers do not figure to do is bring back Jaromir Jagr, who is weighing a return to the NHL.

A source told The News Friday that Jagr's talks with NHL teams are more than just a ploy to get more money out of the Russian team Avangard Omsk, where he has played three seasons. The source said Jagr likely will wind up with the Canadiens.

No news really but still interesting from a Habs perspective...

Well it would certainly make the Habs a team to beat wouldn't it,Jagr is truly a gamebreaking talent at any age so far.
