from David Staples of The Cult of Hockey,
A source close to Czech hockey ace Jaromir Jagr says that Jagr is close to finalizing negotiations with the Edmonton Oilers, reports Euro-hockey expert Peter Adler.
The source would not say when Jagr would report to Edmonton, how much he would be paid, or how long he would sign for. Jagr is now playing with Omsk in the financially-troubled Kontinental Hockey League.
continued and one question?, how about waivers?

Oilers hockey ops boss Kevin Lowe is indicating that Czech hockey ace Jaromir Jagr, 37, isn’t coming to Edmonton—at least not this season, reports Euro-hockey expert Peter Adler.
“Jaromir is under contract in the KHL,” Lowe told Adler.
Jagr has also told Czech national team coach Vladimir Ruzicka he will be playing for the Czech team at the world championships in May.
