Jaromir Jagr enjoyed Phildadelphia, but plans on testing free agency. Also plans to change training to shed some lbs and get faster.

This is not surprising, but is a mild shift from what Jaromir Jagr's agent told CSN Philly earlier this month– that the two sides were working on a deal and looking to get something done before the draft.
Of course, Jagr's agent could just be posturing by saying his client wants to be a free agent…
I'll let reader Joe sum up my feeling on the issue:
@CrossingBroad I think it would be in the flyers best interest as a team to let him go…save the space and promote a young guy to top line

We all liked Jagr, but he hit a wall in March.
