Jagr scored 35 points last season, including 16 goals in just 45 games with Boston and Dallas, but now the Czechoslovakian is looking to play elsewhere in 2013-14 and reports have the veteran looking at three teams and Montreal is one of those on his list.
The Canadiens need a more physical presence on the ice and a player that can help lead the youngsters in pressure situations. Jagr
is a good short-term solution for Montreal as they look to become one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference and his rapport with center Tomas Plekanec makes it a great fit for both he and the team.
It's difficult to find a player
that has scored over 1,600 points and provides leadership on and off the ice, but Jagr wants to help a franchise on the rise and TVA Sports has reported the two sides have a mutual interest and signing with the Habs could be just the boost this hockey club needs to make a deeper run in the NHL Playoffs in 2014.
