So Jaromir Jagr is saying he wants to be a Devil again next season and that it'll be a job for his agent to get a deal done.

Piece of cake, Petr Svoboda predicts.

“I don't want to jump the gun, but I think there's a really great chance that he's going to be a New Jersey Devil next year,” the Montreal-based agent told

Svoboda knows for sure that Jagr has greatly enjoyed his first season in New Jersey and says he's pretty sure that Devils GM Lou Lamoriello wants the team's 42-year-old leading scorer back.

“Basically, Jags is very, very happy where he's at, and I think it's vice versa,” Svoboda said. “I don't see why he should not be going back to New Jersey next year.”

Jagr talked with a bunch of teams last summer – Montreal and Carolina were two of them – before signing on July 23 with the Devils, who were desperate to add a veteran scorer after being floored 12 days earlier by superstar left wing Ilya Kovalchuk leaving the team to play in Russia with 12 seasons and $77 million left on his 15-year, $101 million contract.

Jagr got just $2 million guaranteed from the Devils, but he doubled it to $4 million in late December with a bonus for playing 40 games.

The future Hall of Fame right winger has been a bargain: Playing all 66 games, he leads the team in points (57), assists (36) and plus-minus (plus-19), and he's second in goals (21) head into Friday night's road game against the Florida Panthers. He's also been a team leader vocally and by example with his off-the-charts work habits.
