Russia still does not want to take leave of Czech forward Jaromir Jagr, the greatest star of the past Russian Super League, where he played for Avangard Omsk. However, after the end of the lockout in the NHL, he is supposed to go to New York Rangers, for which he had played. Jagr recently flew to Omsk to join the training and is still staying in Siberia. Avangard's head Konstantin Potapov has refused the notion that the club would lose its most shining star. "It is clear that the lock-out is over. But as long as the players do not sign new collective agreements and do not learn the sums of the new contract, I cannot say whether Jagr will leave," Potapov was quoted by the paper Sport-Express as having said. Jagr, too, spoke diplomatically for the Russian press. "I cannot say whether I will leave Avangard in the days to come. First, I want to examine everything carefully," Jagr said. Sport-Express said that the best paid NHL player was not elated over the outcome of the bargaining over the new collective agreement.
