- Tom Gulitti of the Record: Devils pending UFA Jaromir Jagr said after practicing with the Czech National Team that he has a deal in place with New Jersey according to iSport.cz and Czech TV reports.Jagr has repeatedly said he wanted to return, and Lou Lamoriello said back on April 14th that he wanted him back.
“I don’t think there’s any question that the season he’s had was most impressive and what’s just as impressive is his commitment and his work ethic and the way he wants to continue to play,” Lamoriello said on the day after the Devils’ final game of 2013-14. “So, we certainly would like to have him back. I don’t think there’s any reason not. The only way that somebody would not think that is if they put his age number in front of what he really accomplished. He had an exceptional year in every way.”
- Renaud Lavoie: Jagr has a one-year deal worth between $5 and $6 million, depending on bonuses.
