Jagr's future unclear with Stars
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Dallas Stars are trying to sign veteran superstar Jaromir Jagr to a contract extension, but there are no guarantees he inks a new deal before the trade deadline.

The Dallas Morning News first reported that Jagr and the Stars were in talks on a new deal.

According to the paper, Jagr isn't interested in a long-term deal; he might only want to re-up for one season.

"In my mind, I don't want to sign too long, because if I play bad, I don't want to be stuck someplace and I don't want to hurt the team," Jagr told the paper. "The whole key is I want to be someplace where I can help. If I play [bad], I don't want to do that to somebody. If I play good, I can always sign."

Several teams have expressed an interest in Jagr, if the Stars decide to trade him. The future Hall-of-Famer is making $4.55 million, prorated, this season.

Jagr doesn't possess a no-trade or no-movement clause, but if he doesn't sign a new deal with the Stars and is moved, it's safe to assume he'll end up on a Stanley Cup contender.
