Penguins Make Offer To Jagr To Return

Enough with the sand eating penguin on the other side of the world already.  The Penguin Post is intrigued to report that the contest to bring Jaromir Jagr back to the NHL after being away from the league for the past three seasons has officially reached a fever pitch. With the Pittsburgh Penguins expressing more than a passing interest in bringing the 39 year-old future Hall of Famer back for at least one more season.

Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports tonight that the Penguins have made a one-year offer to Jagr to bring him back to Pittsburgh for the first time since the end of the 2000-2001 season.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero confirmed yesterday that he has offered free agent right winger Jaromir Jagr a one-year contract — he declined to divulge the financial aspects of the proposal — and said he expect to learn Wednesday whether Jagr will accept it.
