2012 Flyers Offseason: Jaromir Jagr Close To Returning

The Flyers and Jaromir Jagr are closing in on an agreement to keep the star in Philly.

Jaromir Jagr might return to the Philadelphia Flyers after all.

Many predicted that the Czech-born star would be one and done in orange and black, but that may not be true according to a foreign report. Take my word for it (thank you Google translate).

Jagr's agent has met with the Philadelphia brass and a deal while not imminent is in the works with all signs pointing towards an agreement between the two.

Jagr was productive last season and doesn't cost a lot of money in comparison to other players with similar stats. General manager Paul Holmgren might be inclined to make the plunge considering he only would have to give Jagr another one-year contract.

With little to no risk, why not see what happens for just one more season while this young team develops? Especially when you consider that the Flyers don't exactly have a bevy of cap space to begin with.
