Jagr hints at NHL return

In a number of news reports, Jaromir Jagr “has hinted at his willingness to return to the NHL,”:http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/22224-THNcom-Blog-Jagr-says-return-to-Penguins-not-out-of-the-question.html where he said he’d even play for the league minimum salary in Pittsburgh.

Jagr has also been in contact with Rangers coach Tom Renney, which is another sign that he’s unhappy in Omsk. And with good reason: along with the death of good friend and teammate Alexei Cherepanov, Omsk’s coach, Wayne Fleming, was either fired or resigned in between periods of a game this week; and the KHL is said to be in financial turmoil.

Does that explain why they couldn’t afford a roof “for their All-Star Game?”:http://www.universalsports.com
