After the Stanley Cup Final, it was assumed that the Bruins would move on from the 41-year-old Czech. The Bruins thought they could resign Nathan Horton, and Tyler Seguin was still in the lineup.
But things have changed.
So with those two guys gone, could the B's actually bring Jagr back?
From Ty Anderson of hockeybuzz.com:
“You know actually we have thought of circling back. We told him we were moving on so he may have moved on also. It’s something that we may revisit,” B’s general manager Peter Chiarelli said during his annual pre-free agency meeting with the media. “He’s on a list of a bunch of guys. I’d like to go into this -- when I talk about reconstructing the right side, maybe we can get some youth in there too in addition to an older guy. When I say older it’s relatively speaking. It’s just older than a youthful player. It could be old now. 28 is the old 32. It’s all relative.”
Even though Seguin is gone, Loui Eriksson is now in the lineup, hindering the chances that Jagr resigns. And because Chiarelli talked about bringing Jagr back more than a week ago, he could have soured on the idea, especially after the team signed Jarome Iginla.
But Jagr's agent told the Associated Press that there are three teams who are interested in the NHL's active scoring leader. Could Boston still be one of them?
