Laurie Carr at Beyond the Blueshirts adds that Bardin is hoping past relationship with Glen Sather and presence of Jagr will help sway leagues to send Rangers to Omsk for exhibition game next fall.
Omsk GM Bardin, while saying he'd love #NYR to play in Omsk next fall, makes clear negotiations are strictly between NHL & KHL, not clubs
Rangers are one of six teams asked to start the 2011-12 season in Europe.
...if the NHL could make this happen I would be pretty pumped and change my stance (against) on the Rangers starting the season across the pond.
I want Jagr back in the NHL. He is still got some fuel and energy that he can play in the best league. I am not saying in New York but I would not mind his career to continue.
I really dont care about playing in Europe. The teams I have seen play in Europe so far are usually off balanced on their return for that season.
@MarkFox If this is the only way we get to see him I guess I'll take it. Don't see him back in the NHL.
