Jagr Rumors TRUE

According to TSN.ca, those Ranger Jagr rumors weren’t exactly false. Jaromir Jagr says he expected to open training camp in New York this fall, rather than Washington.

Jagr confirmed on Thursday that the Capitals were close to dealing him to the New York Rangers this off-season.

“It was not just rumors, it was pretty close to happening and then it didn’t happen,” Jagr said on the opening day of training camp.

Jagr harbours no ill-feelings towards the Capitals, acknowledging that its all part of the business of hockey.


Well, that’s weird. Especially after the two clubs clearly specified otherwise.
