11:58 AM ET 07.19 | The New Jersey Devils were rocked earlier this season when Ilya Kovalchuk decided to abruptly retire, but they may have found a stop-gap replacement. According to Czech news outlet iSport.cz, veteran free agent Jaromir Jagr is doing his due diligence in checking out the Devils and their facilities. iSport.cz reports that Jagr will "personally inspect" the Devils' home arena, the Prudential Center, at some point this week as he considers joining the team.

JJ looked a little slow in the playoffs and that was only 50 some games counting playoffs.

"Jagr will "personally inspect" the Devils' home arena, the Prudential Center..."

If he's looking for Kovalchuk's gonads ... forget it! He never brought them to the Prudential. All he'll find is his used pads (as in Maxi).

It seems Jagr is gonna try a new record! Playing for every team in the NHL! This would be team #8!

Nice, and closing in on a few more milestones too I think......

Agreed. He should realize the tank is dry

Having you facilities inspected by a 42 year old player! Perhaps he's merely there to make recommendations on upgrading the shower facilities! The media seems to think it's only Jagr's decision. Starting to look like Favre.

I hope he says 'Hi' to Harold Ballard for us. And books a room for the Buttgoblin.

Apparently, the Devils never considered necessary to install senior bars in the shower stalls and chair lifts.

Those reservations have already been made. No ice in his corner either. :-)

HB to CS.......66 you say......doesn't appear to be that old......good for him.

Maybe they will unite Jagr, Clowe and Ponikarovsky to form the slowest line in NHL history.
