Jaromir Jagr spurns Flyers, signs with Stars for one-year, $4.55 million deal
Dallas Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk continued the massive overhaul of his team by convincing Jaromir Jagr to leave the Philadelphia Flyers and take his talents to Big D on a one-year, $4.55 million deal.
Jagr had been expected to re-up with the Flyers, but the Stars gave him a significant raise on the $3.3 million he made last season. Although he turned 40 in February, Jagr still managed 19 goals and 54 points in 73 games with Philadelphia last season, his first in the NHL since 2007-08. Dallas has also added winger Ray Whitney, center Derek Roy, defenseman Aaron Rome and center Cody Eakins this offseason.
