NHL Free Agency Rumors: 3 Reasons Why the Flyers Should Keep Jaromir Jagr

The NHL season is rapidly concluding and Jaromir Jagr has shown he is still a vital component to any team he plays for. After a three-year exile in Russia's KHL, Jaromir Jagr has so far posted 18 goals and 31 assists for the Philadelphia Flyers.

His successful return to the NHL has his former league's attention and apparently one team is ready to try and lure him back. However Jagr was offered more than what he got to play for the Flyers when he returned to the NHL.

Therefore money isn't the issue of where he plays. Considering that Jagr has shown he still can compete in the NHL, it's likely to believe he will stay in the NHL until he retires.

The Stanley Cup is the most prestigious trophy in all of sports so it wouldn't be a stretch of the imagination to think Jagr wants to win one more before he hangs up the skates for good.

The Philadelphia Flyers have gone an even longer amount of time than Jagr since Lord Stanley's cup was paraded down Broad Street, so they might be equally inclined to keep the vital piece known as Jagr.

Despite Jagr's age and diminishing skills he still has some things which a team on the cusp like the Flyers need.

Allow me to present to you the three reasons why the Flyers should re-sign him.
