Veteran forward Jaromir Jagr continues to test the free agency waters and, while we don’t know where he will end up for next season, we do know that Jagr will not be returning to the Boston Bruins. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli recently said that the team is looking to go in a younger direction.

“I was asked a couple of times about [Jagr], and we’re done for now,” said Chiarelli, according to CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty. “Obviously you want to develop your talent and bring them in and let them play. Sometimes there’s not room for them and sometimes you use them as chips in deals, but you always have to develop. To be in a position where they’re ready to play breathes new life into everybody.”

Boston has said goodbye to Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley,Andrew Ference, Nathan Horton, Anton Khudobin and Jagr this offseason, so their hopes to get younger are off to a solid start.

The Bruins will be one of the league’s most interesting teams in the 2013-14 season.
