But it is indeed a quiet day (are all the GM's taking the U.S. holiday weekend off to wait for bigger PR punches on Monday?), and aside from Paul's noting of the TVA report that the Canadiens and Jaromir Jagr's agent are talking, this snippet from the Associated Press is all we've got in terms of rumors or innuendo about free agents' destinations: Continue reading "A bit about Jagr and a ‘deep breath’ suggestion is all we’ve got today (thus far, anyway)"
