Jaromir Jagr Likely to Re-sign with Philadelphia Flyers

I saw earlier today that Jaromir Jagr is close to resigning with the Flyers.  This may come as a surprise to some, as many people weren't sure where Jagr stood with the team after they were defeated by the New Jersey Devils in the Playoffs.

Here's what CSN Philly's Tim Panaccio had to say about the matter.

Agent says Jagr, Flyers working on new contract

I'm glad to see that Jagr may be coming back next year.  Even though he seemed to wear down by the end of the season, having Jagr on this team is about more than points(3rd on team).  He is a good role model especially considering how many younger players the Flyers have.

In regards to the salary he may earn, I would take him for any amount less than 3.3 million which is what he earned this past season.  He may not like getting paid less but the fact is that he'll be 41 by the time the season ends.

Here's hoping these rumors come true.  Jaromir Jagr was a great player back in his prime and is still a very serviceable player now and his wisdom and experience will greatly help out this team as evident by this past season.
