And soon. Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, informed CSNPhilly.com on Wednesday of his client's feelings, and the two sides are working to hammer out another one-year deal. "I've talked to Jaromir and I have talked to (GM) Paul (Holmgren) and we hope to get something done before the draft," Svoboda said. "Something done" would conceivably involve an agreement in principle -- considering the rules re: "tagging" outlined by Pierre LeBrun below.

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Laperriere, Today in Flyers History

It was a foregone conclusion that Ian Laperriere would announce his retirement after the 2011-12 season, but there is still a little bit of sadness that his career had to end with two seasons on injured reserve as a result of post-concussion issues that prevented him from returning to the ice for the Flyers. The retirement paperwork will be filed as soon as the off-season officially...

Weber Is The Perfect Replacement For Pronger

from Rob Parent of the Daily Times, While Jagr, who has the strong support of Claude Giroux behind him, should force the Flyers’ hands and demand a two-year deal with a comfortable upgrade over last year’s $3.3 million per year salary hit — and have Svoboda keep flirting with the Red Wings to help make it happen — the Flyers should put pressure on the Predators in an effort...
