When Jaromir Jagr and the New York Rangers parted ways in early July of last year, it wasn't under the greatest of terms; Jagr wanted a multi-year deal to continue to play in New York while Sather would only offer one year. Jagr, who once said that he would like to finish his NHL career as a Ranger, packed his bags and headed over to Russia where he signed a two year/$20 million contract with Omsk Avangard of the Kontinental Hockey League.
I don't understand why this would mean that Jagr is or possibly is coming back. It just says what we all know. Jagr wanted a multi-year deal, Slats wasn't willing. Jagr wanted to finish his NHL career with NYR (which he technically did), but when the Rangers didn't want to give him the deal he wanted, he went to Russia to play in the KHL. Nothing I read there says he wants to come back.

If the article said that Jagr wants to finish his hockey career with NYR, then it'd be a different story.
