from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Where will Jaromir Jagr be next season? Possibly in Philadelphia again, although that’s not guaranteed. The 40-year-old winger, who signed a one-year, $3.3 million deal with the Flyers last summer, had a blast in Philly this season. He’s UFA July 1. His agent, Petr Svoboda, has been in touch with the Flyers.
“We’ve talked, I think there’s mutual interest there, so we’ll see,” Flyers GM Paul Holmgren told ESPN.com Monday.
Because of “tagging” space issues on the cap—CBA lingo for having the maximum allowable under the cap for next season—the Flyers wouldn’t be able to sign Jagr at the moment. They would have to wait until July 1, when the cap is expected to go up to around $70 million.
“But there’s interest from both sides,” said Holmgren. “So we’ll see how it goes.”
