ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun is reporting that the Dallas Stars have decided to trade Jaromir Jagr and Boston is a potential landing spot. Writes LeBrun:
The Dallas Stars have decided to trade Jaromir Jagr rather than sign him to a contract extension, a source told ESPN.com Tuesday.
The Stars had been talking to Jagr's camp for three weeks about a possible extension but over the past few days had second thoughts with the team fading in the standings.
Jagr, a pending unrestricted free agent, is certainly a player that the Boston Bruins covet, another source told ESPN.com.
Earlier today in his Bruins mailbag, ESPNBoston.com's James Murphy mentioned Jagr as a player the Bruins should target.
