We’re still in the middle of break up day here, but a couple of quick notes:
“First I am going to talk to the Rangers,” Jagr said. “That’s No. 1 option for me. I don’t like to change. I feel very comfortable here, with all the people around this organization who are nice to me. They give me a chance to show everybody I still can play hockey. Everybody doubt me when I was playing in Washington for whatever reason. The Rangers gave me a chance and believed in me. All the trainers, everybody around, are so nice to me and so good to me. All I have to do is concentrate on hockey.”
But Jagr, who’s never been a free agent before, also said he was intrigued by the idea of finding out his worth on the open market. Jagr added that he doesn’t have a standing deal in place with his old team in Omsk, but that he will likely talk to them.
