"Jagr, as we've said over and over, has two big boosters in former New York Rangers coach Tom Renney and Jagr's former Omsk coach, Wayne Fleming. I'd say the odds are 60-40 that they sign Jagr."
Matheson adds that the Oilers are torn on Jagr because they are in a rebuilding stage and not sure they want to spend $4 million on a 38-year-old player who certainly isn't the offensive threat he used to be.
...i enjoyed watching Jagr during the Olympics and really hope he gets another chance in the NHL, whether it's with the Oilers or someone else.
...having said that I'd like to see the Rangers pass on Jagr. While the team could use the offense, I agree with Tortorella that the team needs to get younger.
