Jaromir Jagr Joins Philadelphia Flyers, Signs One Year, $3.3 Million Contract

Jaromir Jagr is returning to the NHL. He's returning to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He's heading to.... the Philadelphia Flyers. Yes, the Flyers, and it's reportedly a one year deal worth $3.3 million, according to Darren Dreger of TSN. The Flyers announced the signing on Twitter.

Of course, this all comes together immediately after a week of Jagr Mania in Pittsburgh, where plenty of fans were expecting him to make a triumphant return to the Steel City. He'll make that return as a member of their biggest rival, instead, and that's going to be some theater.

It's a lot of money, and $1.3 million more than the Penguins had reportedly offered, meaning that Jagr clearly got his way. Can Jagr help the Flyers atrocious power play, and can he avoid bumping heads with fiery coach Peter Laviolette and likely new captain Chris Pronger? And can he produce after several years in Russia? 

Lots of questions, only one answer so far: The experiment will take place in Philadelphia.
