No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Rate this topic

764 posts in this topic

Newest article says that other teams have jumped in the mix. Jagr is just delaying to drive up the price. I don't get it, if you wanted the big pay day, why didn't you stay in the KHL?

Because its not all sweetness and light being a proffessional athlete in Russia?

I think he is hoping that the Pens will up their offer for old times sake.

The Pens won't increase their offer, but I think there's a good chance that Holland increases his offer. With Bieksa and Pitkanen signed and Erhoff and Wiz looking like they'll sign elsewhere or get drastically overpaid, Holland opt to overpay for Jagr since its just a one year deal. If he's not going to be able to use all his cap space, why not overpay for a player for one year?

Jagr got 12 (TWELVE) offers. "It has been madness over the last several hours. One team calling after another", informs an unnamed isport source from Jagr's inner circle.

"[Pittsburgh being out] is still the case, the other teams are favorites, but it is not out of question that the Penguins make a brand new offer."

Detroit Red Wings still considered the front runner.

This would explain why Svoboda said they have "a lot to sort out".

According to the NHL website, Pens are still in the mix. Decision expected tonight, signing tomorrow, but we've all heard that before so take it with a grain of salt.

It is clear he is just ******* trying to drive up costs by getting teams to bid against each other.

I have heard the Detroit offer has not changed once.

Agent for Jaromir Jagr still talking to Red Wings, Penguins, as teams await decision

Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, said this afternoon that he's still in talks with the Detroit Red Wings, as well as the Pittsburgh Penguins and other teams, refuting a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the one-time NHL star had decided to sign with the Penguins.

"The Red Wings are obviously one team he wants to play for. There's a chance (a decision) could come later today.''

More twilight-zone-esque statements.

Detroit — The Jaromir Jagr watch continues.

The player's agent, Petr Svoboda, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he expects Jagr, 39, to make a decision about his NHL future by the end of Thursday.

Svoboda said he would be speaking with representatives of the Penguins, Red Wings and Canadiens on Thursday.

"This is obviously a tough decision for Jaromir," Svoboda told the newspaper. "His heart is in Pittsburgh."

I think that Jagr was initially wanting to go to Pittsburgh, and wanted to use Detroit as leverage to secure a bigger deal, but ironically Detroit ended up offering him a bigger payday than Pittsburgh. I'm under the impression that Jagr is currently mulling whether or not to take the bigger pay (Detroit) or go "where his heart is" (Pittsburgh).

Right now, I bet he's just trying to squeeze as much $ out of both teams as possible. Perhaps, Shero hasn't budged and Jagr is trying to get more as we speak. He has until July 1st (not much longer, but still has time) to sign. He's going to use all of the time.

We'll know soon...

Jaromir Jagr News: No Decision Yet As Talks With Red Wings, Penguins Continue

Jaromir Jagr watch will continue until at least 6 p.m. on Thursday, according to Petr Svoboda, Jagr's agent. Svoboda spoke with MLive's Ansar Khan this afternoon and said this:

"No decisions have been made,'' Svoboda said. "We're talking a lot. Nothing is going to happen before 6 p.m.''

Asked if he anticipated a decision today, Svoboda said: "I don't have a crystal ball. I don't know.''

Khan reports that Svoboda is speaking to both the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins, as well as other teams. The Montreal Canadiens have been mentioned as being in the mix before, so it's possible they are one of the other teams in contact with Jagr's agent. A team from the KHL could also still be trying to lure Jagr back to Russia for another season.

Svoboda said that there's a chance Jagr's decision could be made on Thursday at some point. There are obviously no guarantees, but Red Wings general manager Ken Holland has said before that he wants a decision before free agency opens. Considering free agency starts at noon on Friday, time is running out.

with jagr, it is pretty obvious what would drive his decision: city population.

omsk is just over a million, pittsburgh has as twice as much and positive dynamic. detroit's population is as twice as much as pittsburgh, negative dynamic though.

he's screwed all girls in omsk. now he looks at better chance in detroit, but he misses his pittsburg's girls.

as you see, it is tough decision he has to make.

12 teams have been in contact? I can see why he's taking his time. If I had put out applications to 3 companies and 9 others expressed an interest in me, I'd be at least looking into what they had to say.

I also understand why he would consider going back to Russia. Think of it from a Detroit point of view- if you were from Detroit, and you had taken jobs in Oslo, Rome, Lisbon, and Timbuktu, and then you got an offer in Toronto, wouldn't you take it? You'd be closer to home, the culture would be more familiar, and you'd be able to read half of what was on the cereal boxes. I don't see why people nag the Europeans/Russians for going back to their hemisphere.
