NHL notes: Agent says 3 teams 'very interested' in Jaromir Jagr
Jaromir Jagr's agent says three teams are "very interested" in his 41-year-old client.
Petr Svoboda, though, told The Associated Press on Saturday he expects it to take some time for the NHL's active scoring leader to sign a contract.
Jagr might have company waiting for a new job.
J.P. Barry, who represents two of the top free agents available, Daniel Cleary and Mason Raymond, says he thinks decision-makers are taking a breath after a frenzy of activity Friday.
Day 1 of the free agency flurry included Jarome Iginla signing a one-year deal worth as much as $6 million with Boston, which almost acquired him last season from Calgary.
