Report- Jagr Wants To Return To Philly

from Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly,

When the Flyers held their break-up day on May 10, the words emanating from Jagr clearly indicated the club’s chances to re-sign him were questionable.

Jagr was asked three times about re-signing and avoided answering questions directly, while deferring to his “role” as being an issue on coming back for the 2012-13 season.

He didn’t like being bounced off Claude Giroux’s line or having his minutes cut during the playoffs, even though it was plain he was laboring to skate because of injury.

Jagr’s position in May was in stark contrast to Jan. 19 when he told reporters he was going to re-sign as a Flyer without reservation.

Well, once again, something has changed….

Agent Petr Svoboda, the former heart-on-his-sleeve Flyer defenseman, told CSNPhilly.com on Wednesday night that Jagr wants to come back and that the two sides are working on another one-year deal for next season.

Jagr’s still alive?

@FlyersFan, typical Flyer fan, more worried about the Penguins then your own team.  He’s another year older and didn’t do a whole lot in the playoffs.  Please take him, thank you.

Yeah, 8 points in 11 games is pretty damn awful isn’t it?

well in the first round against the penguins every flyer put up numbers,  what did he do against N.J.?  If Fleury didn’t turn in one of the worst playoff goaltending performances ever, his numbers are not impressive.
