Jaromir Jagr's decision could come Tuesday

The Detroit Red Wings could find out by Tuesday whether they'll land free-agent forward Jaromir Jagr.

Petr Svoboda, Jagr's agent, said today there remains "interest from both sides."

"There's nothing new to report today," he said. "We're going to know a bit more tomorrow."

Asked whether the Wings were still in the mix, Svoboda said: "Absolutely."

From the Twitter feed of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review’s Rob Rossi:

More tomorrow, but I’m hearing #Pens plan to reach agreements with (Tyler) Kennedy and (Jaromir) Jagr before Friday #tribpens #jagrwatch

Guess that means no jagr.

Yep I guess that means no Jagr. But you never know...

So we've got Red Wings source (Freep) quoting Jagr's agent saying Wings are still in the mix vs Pens source stating Pens get him.

Still a tossup imo.

I agree, obviously a Pittsburgh paper is going to report the Pens are planning of reaching an agreement, doesn't mean its actually going to happen.

+1. We've been hearing so many things out of Pitsburgh that are possibly not true. So I wouldn't take that tweet as 100% correct. I say it is probably 60% wings and 40% pens. This is my opinion based on the fact that it has seemed all along that the wings have been the most interested team and that Pit is on the fence about the idea of having Jags back in Pitsburgh

there is a rumor we have offered one year 3.75M contract.

I have to call bulls*** on that. I believe you that you heard the rumour but I don't buy for a second that Holland would offer him that much (unless that number includes performance incentives).

I'm not sure what Jagr is thinking, but if I was in his position I would sign with Detroit. His agent has been in contact with Holland and Babcock a lot, they clearly showed the most interest by already making an offer and offering the most money. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh is thinking and debating, showed little interest in the beginning, is expected to offer around $1 mil. I would want to go where I'm most wanted. Also the Wings are more committed to winning this year because of Lidstrom's potential retirement, while the Pens won't go crazy and will make moves to ensure long term success. Maybe its because I hear a lot of "Jagr is going to Pittsburgh" talk around here, but I have a bad feeling that's where he's going even though I think Detroit would be the better fit at this time.

With Crosby and Malkin back, though, Pittsburgh is going to be a beast next season.

I agree. Plus they will be very well rested.

Every team in the league will be taking runs at Crosby. One hit can send him to the showers.

Look for the Pens to sign Lilja to be the Pens new enforcer to protect Sid. No Weber in the East.

The penguins need someone else taking up space in the box. :ph34r:

WTF!?!?! I thought he was gonna render a decision sometime today? The more this drags on, the more I say forget it! I want Holland's attention on the D come July 1, not the meanderings of an unsure Czech...

Penguins offer Jagr one-year contract

Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, could not be reached for comment this evening.

Svoboda is certain, however, to be hearing from Shero Wednesday.

"Tomorrow," Shero said, "is decision day."

So the ball is in Jagr's court. Wings, Pens or possibly Habs. Maybe its me, but doesn't that quote from Shero sound like he's deciding when Jagr will decide?

Reading between the lines in all this, it sounds as if Bylsma wants Jagr but Shero not so much. I think Jagr takes the Pens offer because it has been his #1 choice all along. If he wanted to be a Red Wing then he would have signed by now. He's been holding out for the Pens all along which is fine by me.

Yes Jagr, please sign with the Pens and when Crosby's gone within the first 20 games you can bear the brunt of the responsibility with Malkin's dumb ass as to why Pitt sucks.
