How far will the Rangers get this season?

Jagr's Agent Contacts Rangers

Reports from indicate that Jaromir Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, has contacted Detroit, Pittsburgh, Montreal and the Rangers regarding his client’s future.  It had long been assumed that Jagr, 39, would return to the KHL, but negotiations with SKA St. Petersburg have broken down and Jagr is now only considering one Russian team, Avangard Omsk, where he has played the last three seasons.  Jagr’s top choice in the NHL is said to be the Red Wings, but it’s unknown if the interest is mutual.  Pittsburgh has already denied interest in Jagr, but there hasn’t been a whole lot of news one way or the other out of Montreal. 

The Edmonton Journal’s Peter Adler spoke with Jagr and Adler believes that Jagr isn’t currently worried about where he’s playing next year.  Adler reports that Jagr is instead focused on the Czech team, Kladno, of which he is a 70-percent owner.  Jagr basically told Adler that there’s a lot to be done in the offseason with Kladno and that’s his No. 1 priority right now.

That Jagr’s agent and the Rangers have indeed been in contact is the most significant indication yet that a return to Broadway is a possibility, albeit a remote one.  The belief was that Jagr wanted his future resolved sooner than later, but Adler’s report contradicts that.  Still, it appears that the chances of Jagr returning to North America are growing.
