Jaromir Jagr was given several chances to say he wanted to return to the Flyers. He did not bite. It appears he will test the FA market.


“I want to play NHL. I want to play somewhere when I know the team’s going to want to me to,” Jagr said. “Hopefully we’re going to find some team where I can play. I still love the game. I think I’m going to be better than I was this year...It’s very tough for me to talk right now,” he said. “I said my feeling after the game, how I feel about the whole city, the whole organization. I still believe if I get ready, and I want to get ready, I don’t want to just come back just to sit here. I want to be better than I was this year. I truly believe I can do it if I practice the right way to get ready.”


Jagr made 3.3 million last season and is likely to take a reduced salary. Thoughts?

I'll take em for a year at 2.25 mil max. Before people start saying hes not worth that, he did put up a respectable amount of production this year with the Flyers and was out for a few games with injury. I'll take 55-60 points for 2 mil anyday.

For the right price I'd ta.........nah, no thanks! We have plenty of roster players, need Parise and Suter. I'd rather have Nyquist up permanently than Jagr....

If Kenny can sign Parise, there is simply no room for Jagr in the line-up...

Miller, Mursak
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

He refused to take our offer or that from the Pens last year, so good luck back in the KHL Jagr.

I don't know about that. He took 3.3 million because no one knew how he would translate to the NHL after so many years in the KHL. Now that he had a hell of a season, I bet someone pays even more for him.

What's just insane to me is that not even that long ago he said how much he absolutely adored Philly and would never regret coming to them. He stated on his blog that the ice time he was receiving was absolutely nothing to him and he didn't mind. Now? Now, he's pissed and wants to find an organization that will feed him the minutes he wants. Okay man... you're about bat s*** crazy Jagr. So hypocritical. "I mean, I don't get the big deal about Sidney Crosby" continues to talk about Crosby for the next 20 pages. Dude's a hot mess.

Loved his playoff chops, but big 'no" to Jammy.

I can see him going back to the Pens to win his fanbase back. Also It would be wonderful drama after playing for the Flyers for a year. If we lose Hudler, then I wouldn't be against pursuing him.

Can we get Fedorov too?

We'll see, I wouldn't be opposed to it, he slowed down considerably towards the end of the season/playoffs, but that's to be expects after 3 years in the KHL playoff 60ish games.

Still a good offensive player, I'd be hesitant though mainly because I think we need more speed up front, but if Holland thinks Jagr can score 20 goals and will sign for one year I don't see the harm.

Jagr might thrive with our puck-possession game.

But, honestly, isn't this exactly the sort of signing we don't want to see Holland make this summer?

We should take him if Kenny can't land Parise.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

I would be ok with it, just to see his iconic #68 in a Red Wings uniform. If it's a good price and he has a worse season, whatever is a one year deal and we have depth, but there is more upside than downside. He thinks he can be even better? Great!
