Will NHL teams look at Jaromir Jagr’s 62 points in 84 games last year or at his birth certificate which would turn 41 in mid-season?
Can some offence-starved clubs afford not to look at him?
The much-decorated Jagr’s decision to join the Flyers last year after time in the KHL was something of a fluke after agent Petr Svoboda was approached by the team during dealings with another client, Jakub Voracek. Jagr was looking at Detroit, Pittsburgh and Montreal at the time. A surprise destination this year might also be in the cards.
“It’s up to my agent,” Jagr told Denik Sport, a Czech newspaper. “We will see what happens. You never know.”
Jagr was disappointed at his ice time late in the year. The Camden Courier Post reports Jagr is likely to seek a small raise on $3.3 million this season or hold off to wait out a rumoured change in the new CBA that players 40 and over will not have salaries count against the cap.

At the right price, why not?
