Report: Jagr wants to re-sign with Flyers
CSNPhilly.com's Tim Panaccio reported Wednesday that Jaromir Jagr would like to return to the Flyers in 2012-13 and that the two sides are working on another one-year deal.

The chances of Jaromir Jagr playing a second season in Philadelphia appear to be growing stronger.

CSNPhilly.com's Tim Panaccio reported Wednesday that Jagr would like to return to the Flyers in 2012-13 and that the two sides are working on another one-year deal. Jagr, 40, had 19 goals and 35 assists in 73 regular-season games before going 1-7-8 in 11 postseason contests.

"I've talked to Jaromir and I have talked to [Flyers GM] Paul [Holmgren] and we hope to get something done before the draft," agent Petr Svoboda told the website.

Svoboda also said he is optimistic that restricted free agent Jakub Voracek is close to signing a new contract. Voracek went 18-31-49 in 78 games in his first season with Philadelphia.

Holmgren confirmed to CSNPhilly.com on Wednesday night that the Flyers would like to see Jagr back in Philadelphia next season.

"We have interest in Jaromir," Holmgren said.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
