Jaromir Jagr reiterated that he'd like to re-sign with the Devils.

"We have to wait and see whatever my agent and Lou talk about," Jagr said. "I like it here a lot, no question about it. At my age, it's pretty tough to change teams year after year. It took me at least 15, 20 games just to get used to the players. It's not easy to play in this league plus you have to get used to a new system, new players. It's very tough for me and I don't have that many games left. So, why waste 20 extra games? But we will see." Jagr led the team in scoring with 67 points in 82 games this past season.

Jagr played a huge role in their victory with a goal and three assists. He hasn't been shy about sharing his feelings as a member of the Devils and he has every reason to be passionate given that the team is barely holding onto hope in the battle for a playoff spot.
