Two Devils Talk, One About Jagr

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils left wing Ilya Kovalchuk said he had not seen the comments from Kontinental Hockey League president Alexander Medvedev that SKA St. Petersburg will top any offer he will receive from an NHL team this summer.

“They’re just rumors,” Kovalchuk told me. “I’m trying to not think about it. This is my time in New Jersey and I have to focus on that because there’s it’s too much going on it my life in the last couple of weeks: the Olympics, the trade, my wife is pregnant. But now everything is settled down and I’m really focused on Jersey. We’ve got a great team and a great opportunity.”...

After playing with Jaromir Jagr on the Czech Republic’s Olympic team, Devils forward Patrik Elias believes Jagr wants to play in the NHL again.

“I think he’d love to,” Elias said. “He certainly showed and proved that he still has it and he can be an effective player, no question about it.”

Elias was understandably not happy with the Czech team losing, 2-0, to Finland in the quarterfinals.
