Russian Hockey League pays best?
Posted 09 July 2008 - 02:37 PM
The Russian League team Avangard Omsk announced the signing of the 36-year-old Czech winger on its Web site Friday.
"It was the toughest decision in my life, hockey-wise. ... No question about it. I hate making changes," Jagr told The Canadian Press.
Jagr's agent, Pat Brisson, confirmed the signing in an e-mail. He and Jagr, as well the team, wouldn't comment on contract terms. However, the deal is believed to be for two years plus an option for a third, and will pay Jagr about $7 million tax free, the equivalent of about $11 million a season in the NHL.

As for the whole deal with NHL'ers going overseas, can't say i blame them, but they're doing themselves a disservice in regards to status as of course the best do play over here. BUT, money talks & b.s. walks. Some of the offers given & have been made are much larger than what they can receive in north america. Since this thread started, there's been an agreement with the Russian league & the NHL in regards to "tampering" with players under contract.
