So long Dallas? Jagr gives Stars trade list

Apr 2, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT


Jaromir Jagr has provided the Dallas Stars with a list of teams to which he’d accept a trade.

Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, told CKWX radio (Vancouver) that the list was given after contract talks failed to result in an extension for the 41-year-old.

It’s not clear if the list was provided at the request of the Stars. Per CapGeek, Jagr does not have a no-trade clause. However, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that he’d refuse to report to a team that doesn’t meet with his approval. This is not, after all, a fringe player that needs to take what he’s given.

Svoboda wouldn’t (or couldn’t) say which teams are on the list.

Jagr has 14 goals and 12 assists in 34 games.


ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun is reporting that the Stars will indeed trade Jagr.

The Boston Bruins are the favorites to acquire the star winger.

    Jagr doesn’t have a NTC but is giving the Stars a list of teams he will show up to of he is trade. What a POS Jagr is. Typical Jagr. F him. Just go back to KHL and take to POS agent with you.

      Says the fan of a team who just aquired Jerome Iginla, who included Boston on the list of teams he’d go to, then says he won’t go to Boston and would rather go to Pittsburgh. And I’m not a fan of either so I couldn’t care less…

        Don’t give a player a full NMC if you are not going to let him make the choice of where he is going to play. The Flames gave him that right and he used. Jagr was not giving that right by the Stars and is forcing the Stars hand. Completely different situations. This is comparable to the Flames/Kipper situation and not the Flames/Iggy situation.

      Are u serious buddy? You dont think jagr earned the right to be involved in where he goes to play? And apparently ur uneducated because his “pos agent” petr svoboda used to be nasty…. Just shut up you guys in pittsburgh are still butthurt he went to the flyers instead of pitts!

      Why wouldn’t he have a choice? He’s an actual person like rest of us. What if your job wanted to send you to some crappy town, are you forced to go there?

        I’m not under a contract with a company that can trade my rights. But if I was and they told me I was traded I would go finish out my contract. It’s a little thing called integrity.

        Haha ok.

      • killerpgh - Apr 2, 2013 at 1:42 PM

        And for the record when I was in the Army I was sent to a bunch of crappy places throughout the world and I didn’t have a say.

      For as long as Jagr has been in the league, I think a team owes him that level of respect considering what he brings to an organization. Why cause bad blood between franchises sending a player who may not report to camp (although I dont think he would do that) It’s just easier for them to shop his rights. As far as his agent Petr Svboda, POS agent? As a player he went through these situations himself so who better to know the ropes and how to navagate the best possible solution for all parties involved. Sounds like sour grapes for a fan who felt shunned he didn’t return to Pittsburgh at all…Remember, your franchise thought he wasn’t worth it in the first place and let him go.

      • killerpgh - Apr 2, 2013 at 1:19 PM

        Why would the stars owe him anything? He has been there less than a year and only signed there because they offered him the most money. If his agent thought it was important to have a say where he might get traded to he should have demanded a NMC/NTC. If it is true that he didn’t have one Jagr they need to suck it up to let the Stars do what they want with him.

      killerpgh You sound like a women scorned (no offense to our lady posters).
      Jagr did a lot for the Penguins and you should be grateful and appreciative of the years you had to watch one of the best all time players in the world play this great game. Give your head a shake and go sit in the corner for 10 minutes.

    Wiz with

    Jagr is exercising his defacto ntc. He is not some scrub and commands that kind of respect.

  4. mpbonaco - Apr 2, 2013 at 12:39 PM

    Jagr will return to the Capitals! Hope they are on the list!

  5. misterchainbluelightning - Apr 2, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    Roy’s already been traded to the Canucks

  6. modellforprez - Apr 2, 2013 at 12:50 PM

    It is Jarome not jerome shows what kinda edamacation u gets at psu eh psudu. anyway any and all pen gun fans can and will dislike Mario Jr. all we heard for the better part of 4-5 seasons was him crying how he wanted traded then last year they were gonna bring him back and reconcile and he no doubt would have a statue on 5th Ave. and the fans would of accepted him because he had matured some and this will always be Marios team and city. so shut the front door and go find ryan buelly and hunt some ghosts and leave sports to the realest

    • psudu - Apr 2, 2013 at 6:31 PM

      modell…If you are going to critique someone for misspelling a player’s first name, you should make sure your post is clean of stupid errors, such as saying “he wanted traded” instead of wanted to be traded and “fans would of” instead of would have…

    NO THANK YOU. The thought of Jagr in a Bruins uni makes me sick.

    • coronakid76 - Apr 2, 2013 at 1:20 PM

      Homer should take him back. He just dumped 6 mil for 1 more year of Timmo!!! Why not an actual forward who will get the most out of his linemates (giroux, hartnell with career year playing alongside Jagr). His chance to correct his last mistake!! Give em a 3rd round conditional and rinaldo.
