Jagr will ponder future with Devils
TheFourthPeriod.com

Future Hall-of-Fame right wing Jaromir Jagr plans on taking a bit of time before making a decision as to whether or not he'll sign an extension with the New Jersey Devils.

Jagr likes playing for the Devils and doesn't feel the team is that far off from competing.

Asked if he needed the team to improve this off-season before deciding on his future, Jagr responded honestly.

"Wait and see?" he told NJ.com. "I don't have to see anything. If I come back ... Let's talk if I come back: I feel like they have a good enough team to make the playoffs, maybe with one or two changes."

Jagr signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Devils last summer and will see his salary increase wherever he ends up.

The two-time Stanley Cup champion, drafted fifth-overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1990, is likely to return for a 20th NHL season and the Devils are hoping to retain his rights.

Jagr, 42, has collected 24 goals and a team-high 40 assists for a team-high 64 points in 79 games with the Devils so far this season.
