Rumblings: Stars will trade Jaromir Jagr
By Pierre 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 UFA, is certainly a player that the Boston Bruins covet, another source told ESPN.com, and I believe they are the frontrunner.
The Red Wings are also interested in Jagr, but it is unclear what price they are willing to pay.
Either way, Jagr Watch is officially on.
