Khan adds Jagr would prefer to play in Detroit for the chance to play with Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg and, if he returns, Nicklas Lidstrom.
...Jagr going to Detroit would be the best case scenario for me. He's back in the NHL and not on the Rangers.
Jagr had 19 goals and 32 assists in 49 games last season with Avangard Omsk of the KHL.
It has been reported that Jagr is in negotiations with four KHL teams.

I doubt Detroit would pay for him unless they're looking to replace Madano. Pittsburg would be a fun place to see him try to make a comeback - any word on Sid's return?
Maybe Jager's agent should call Winnipeg
Although I really appreciate what Jagr did when he was in New York, this team has some chemistry that I think isn't worth messing with by bringing Jagr's personality back into the room. I wish him the best of luck but don't think that coming back to Broadway is good for either party
I heard on GEICO sportsnight last night (SNY) around midnight that his agent contacted 4 teams including the Rangers, Canadiens, and Pittsburgh. I guess Detroit is the 4th. Needless to say I did not sleep well after hering that! Thanks for the memories Jagr, let's leave it that way.
