I found out today that Khudobin was born in modern day Kazakhstan, but when he was born Kazakhstan was part of the USSR, so technically he is Russian.

Pitkanen, Ruutu, Oskar Osala, Rasmus Rissanen, and Tommi Kivisto are Finish

Tlusty and Michal Jordan are from the Czech Republic

Semin and Evgenii Dadonov are from Russia

Sekera is from Slovakia

Lindholm, Rask, and Karlsson are from Sweden

Hofmann is from Switzerland

Everyone else is either American or Canadian.

There was a rumor that Jaromir Jagr was spotted in Raleigh today.

I don't see Jagr offering much here. He was terrible in the playoffs.

I'm not really big on him either, there is only so much a 41 year old is going to be able to give you.

He's a top 20 player in NHL history, but unless he's on the third line; he's not offering much.

Jagr would make perfect sense on the third line with Lindholm. He played decent in the playoff's he just didn't get the stats to go with it, he was around the puck making plays and getting scoring chances, just didn't capitalize on them.

On 99.9 the fan, Raleigh sports radio, JR just stated that this mystery free agent is waiting patiently for a roster move to take place to free up some cap room.

 

So, who is it and how much?

It's Jagr and he probably wants 4 million when we can literally only offer him 3 million... I don't know what else he wants us to do... There's not a single roster move to make.
