Well, I don’t hold twitter as a very reliable source.
Stan Savran, a hockey legend here in Pittsburgh, reported that a Russian newspaper has reported that Jaromir Jagr is accepting the 1 year, 1.4 million dollar contract that Ray Shero has offered him.
He’s not due to land in New York until 4:00 pm est and is supposed to announce his decision then.
Update 3:30 pm est:
Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda has quashed those rumors.
“None of the rumors are true,” he said. “He hasn’t signed with anyone yet.”
I’ll update once I get my hands on the article.
Update 5:00 pm est:
Jaromir Jagr’s plane still hasn’t landed. It was supposed to be here and his decision announced by now.
I’m going insane waiting!
Update 5:54 pm est:
The reason Jagr hasn’t landed yet? There are TURTLES on the runway…no planes can land. o_0 Follow the #Jagrwatch on Twitter!
Final update for 6/29 @ 11:42 pm est:
While watching Channel 11 news it was announced that neither the Pens NOR his agent know where Jaromir Jagr is.
How do you lose a hockey player? Is that even possible?
