Jagr Wants to Play in 21st Season!
1) In what is probably not a shocker, New Jersey Devil Right wing and ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr has told sources close to Fauxrumors that he intends to continue his NHL career next season. The 42 year old Czech native has not only participated in the Sochi Olympics but also in every game the Devils have played thus far, leading the team in every offensive categories. Even posting an impressive +14 on a team with few plus players.
2) The part of the story that we found interesting is that Jagr apparently intends to possibly move on to his 8th team (assuming he doesn't re-sign with a team he has previously suited up for) Not that he has any ill feelings toward NJ, but with their likely missing the playoffs and the future being cloudy, the veteren wants another chance to win a Cup. We're told he would prefer to stay in the East where travel is far less onerous, but would consider one of the west coast teams if an appropriate offer from an East team fails to come to fruition. Confidants of JJ tell Fauxrumors that he'd love to go back to NY and be part of the Rangers.
