Jaromir Jagr News: No Decision Yet As Talks With Red Wings, Penguins Continue

Jaromir Jagr watch will continue until at least 6 p.m. on Thursday, according to Petr Svoboda, Jagr's agent. Svoboda spoke with MLive's Ansar Khan this afternoon and said this:

"No decisions have been made,'' Svoboda said. "We're talking a lot. Nothing is going to happen before 6 p.m.''

Asked if he anticipated a decision today, Svoboda said: "I don't have a crystal ball. I don't know.''

Khan reports that Svoboda is speaking to both the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins, as well as other teams. The Montreal Canadiens have been mentioned as being in the mix before, so it's possible they are one of the other teams in contact with Jagr's agent. A team from the KHL could also still be trying to lure Jagr back to Russia for another season.

Svoboda said that there's a chance Jagr's decision could be made on Thursday at some point. There are obviously no guarantees, but Red Wings general manager Ken Holland has said before that he wants a decision before free agency opens. Considering free agency starts at noon on Friday, time is running out.
