Jaromir Jagr enjoyed his first season in Philadelphia, but not enough to prevent him from checking out what other opportunities may be available to him next year. Jagr appears set to test the free agent market on July 1, as was first reported by TSN's Darren Dreger on Monday. Despite his age, the 40-year-old veteran will attract plenty of interest with precious few proven scorers...

NHL Rumors: Flyers Jaromir Jagr Testing Free Agency

About this time last year, Jaromir Jagr was rocking the hockey world with the news that he planned to return to the NHL after playing in Russia since 2008. When he did, after a protracted back-and-forth that had people on Twitter calling it #JagrWatch, he signed with the Philadelphia Flyers instead of the team he memorably won two Stanley Cups with, the cross-state rival Pittsburgh...

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 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...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: 4 more draft possibilities, Nash numbers don't add up

Here are four more players who may be available when the Flyers' make their first-round pick with the 20th overall selection of the 2012 draft. Brendan Gaunce (C): Think of him as a less talented version of Brayden Schenn. Gaunce has good size and plays a heart-and-soul game but does not have Schenn's natural finishing touch around the net. Gaunce arguably has superior...
