He means he isn't getting any offers that he likes and is probably done in the NHL.

As some have already said, I think that he was likely trying to say that things look "black/bleak" for an NHL return.

You are going to see a Jagr-Koivu-Selanne line next season. Average age of over 40 on that line!

I'm pretty sure he means something along the lines of "as for my future in the NHL, things are looking dim (dim = dark = black)"

It is sounding more like he's saying he doesn't like his odds for a return.

Before Jágr said bye (he actually said "čau") he told his fans (fb followers) to look forward to tomorrow. I don't think you tell somebody to look forward to next update if you are going to announce your retirement.

But I am not sure he will come with concrete team. I don't see into JJ's head nor do I have some secret info. Knowing the Czech language (and Jágr) I can at least tell you for sure that the video was just JJ being ironic and making fun of the situation.

Too bad about jagr, but he only cares about the money it seems. He is probably asking for a ton of money and teams are probably not willing to over pay a guy who is 41 years old. He is a good player and brings veteran presence to any team he plays on, it is just that he is not worth the money he is demanding.

A warm climate, but likely where the sun is prevalent in culture.

I'd have to say it's San Jose, LA, Anaheim, Florida, or Tampa would be my best guess.

It means he's going to retire IMO. Maybe go to the KHL? Because that's what retiring is, right?
