Hurricanes not in discussions with Jagr, per team sources

Bruce Bennett

Jaromir Jagr is not the "mystery man" free agent after all.

Peter Svoboda, Jaromir Jagr's agent, confirmed in an exclusive interview with Canes Country Wednesday afternoon that the winger was, in fact, interested in joining the team.

According to team sources, the Hurricanes are currently not in discussions with 41-year-old winger; he was not the free agent general manager Jim Rutherford referred to Tuesday in a radio interview on 99.9 The Fan.

"One of the bigger free agent's agents contacted me and said 'my client may take a one-year deal, at a low number, just to come play for you guys,'" Rutherford said when speaking to the media following last months draft.

The question still remains, who are the 'Canes targeting?
