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?
