Found June 20, 2012 on The Majors Detroit:
With Jaromir Jagr set to become a free agent on July 1st, it’s still anticipated that he will end up re-signing with the Philadelphia Flyers. However if he doesn’t, the market for Jagr despite his age should still be pretty good… but could the Red Wings be at the front of the line for his services? A year removed from the pursuit of Jagr last season, MLive.com’s Ansar Khan believes the Wings could take another shot at the veteran forward if they can’t obtain highly sought after Zach Parise. “… The Red Wings made him an offer last summer (one year for $2.25 million) and weren’t willing to budge from it. It appeared he might return to Pittsburgh, but he took a better offer from the Flyers … Offering him slightly more than anyone else, on a one-year deal, might do it (this year) …” Still if the Wings don’t end up signing Parise it would be hard to imagine them going after Jagr over lets say an Alexander Semin. I’m also hesitant to believe that Jagr is the best option beyond that

Red Wings morning quickies: on Jagr and the draft

The Red Wings’ unsuccessful courtship of one Jaromir Jagr definitely turned me off regarding the massive ego and mercurial tendencies of a player who’s turned into something of a diva—even at 40 years of age—but just in case Jagr tests the free agent market and decides to, say, not stay with Philadelphia, or decides not to fulfill a stated dream of playing for the Montreal...

Why Signing Jaromir Jagr Is A Terrible Idea

So if you haven't read Matt Kalman's post over at CBSBoston.com yet, do so before venturing on. A lot of what I'm going to say is going to be a reflection of that piece. Now, don't get this misconstrued in any way. Days of Y'Orr loves Kalman. We love his snarky attitude on Twitter and we think he's a damn good writer, but we don't agree that Jagr would...
