Jagr thinking about Montreal

Posted By: Barry Morgan · 5/15/2011 3:08:00 PM

Jaromir Jagr is sure making it sound like he's not ruling out a return to the NHL and Montreal is on his radar.

Shortly after the Czech Republic beat Russia today 7-4 for the bronze medal at the World Hockey Championship, Jagr was asked about the possibility of an NHL comeback.

He told the Edmonton Journal, "Maybe it would be still fun to go back to NHL. Maybe Pittsburgh. Maybe Montreal. Maybe New York."

Jagr spent most of his 17-year NHL career with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He told the newspaper, "I play there for a long time and (former teammate) Mario (Lemieux) is the owner. It's better to play with great centres like (Sidney) Crosby and (Evgeni) Malkin."

Jagr spent 11 seasons with the Penguins before joining the Washington Capitals followed by the New York Rangers.

After the 2007-08 season, he signed with Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League. But Jagr says he's received no fomal offers from Omsk for next season.

    How about Mike Modano? lol! He's probably available and he's over 40! Lol! He would make a good balance with 40+ old Jagr..lol! Keeping Jagr to play only on the power-play and finish his career here is short-sighted" and fool-hardy. Habs can't do better than that? Both guys are "Over-the-hill".. Habs should be investing in players that can help them in the long-run not for a year or two..
