And the rumors will start again as TSN is reporting that Jagr's agent has listed five teams that Jagr would like to play for next season in a comeback in the NHL.
According to TSN:
According to reports on MLive.com and the Detroit Free Press on Thursday, Jagr's agent Petr Svoboda has put out feelers to five NHL teams - the Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens - about the possibility of the future Hall of Famer signing on as a free agent.
Personally I'd be surprised if Jagr re-surfaced in the NHL next season and even more surprised if it were on Broadway. I don't think the Rangers will be interested and truthfully I don't think they should be. I do think that Jagr probably is capable of performing close to a level that he did when he last played on this side of the Atlantic Ocean, but the chemistry of the Rangers has changed a lot since Jagr was last in New York.
This is now a young team moving forward; this is Ryan Callahan, Brandon Dubinsky and Marc Staal's team now. In my opinion, no good could come from trying to bring Jagr's personality back into that locker room.
