It’s Free Agent Day eve and Jaromir Jagr still hasn’t signed with anyone. And no one seems to know where he is. Last word was that his plane was held up on the runway at JFK by a bunch of turtles. Yes, turtles. Not even of the ninja variety. According to other sources, he was spotted at Wimbledon.
Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, who at one point promised us Jagr would make a decision last night now says he’ll make a decision tonight. Or Friday. Or Saturday. And he’s sure he’ll sign with Pittsburgh. Or Detroit. Or some other team. But he’s definitely in the U.S. Or London.
At this point I can only think Jagr is taking PR pointers from Bret Favre.
I’m going to keep finding uglier and uglier pictures of Jagr to post until he’s an NHL player again.
