Jagr Watch continues!

As of today, Jaromir Jagr still has not signed with an NHL team for the 2017-2018 season, but I feel like things could get VERY interesting over the next couple weeks for #JagrWatch and here are reasons why...

Today I saw an update that he is expected to play on Saturday for HC Kladno, the Czech team that he owns with his father. But over the last few days there have also been reports hinting he would make a decision next week about joining a KHL team.

So... he could potentially play in the Czech league, leave there to play for the KHL, compete for the gold medal in the Olympics in February for Czechoslovakia, finish the KHL season in April (with potential for a Gagarin Cup), and still be available to be picked back up by the NHL in time for the Stanley Cup playoffs... all in one season...

Sounds crazy, but we are talking about a guy who still is in great shape, has fire for the game, and is still a solid player, so I figure anything is possible and I can't wait to see what happens!
