From the Philadelphia Flyers site, a media Q&A with Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren tonight:
Q: What went into the Jagr signing?
“Well, obviously it sort of just started innocently yesterday. I just sent a text to Petr Svoboda, his agent, who also represents Jake Voracek, and I didn’t know who was involved. I read over the last few days it was just Detroit and Pittsburgh were the teams, so I just sent him a text about if Jaromir would have interest in playing for Philadelphia and it just kind of went from there, and culminated today with our signing of him. So we’re excited to have Jaromir. He’s going to bring a lot of leadership and we still believe he’s a guy that’s capable of putting up a fair amount of points. We’re excited to have him.”
