The book was closed on Jaromir Jagr's return to Boston.  Then it was open again…

Now that the Bruins have signed Jarome Iginla, Jagr's return once again appears unlikely.

According to Louis-Andre Lariviere of TVA Sports (Link in French), Jaromir Jagr could wind up with the Montreal Canadiens next season.

"Jaromir always wanted play in Montreal,” said Jagr's agent Petr Svoboda. “We discussed with [CEO] Marc Bergevin yesterday. The interest is mutual, but the decision is now up to the Canadiens.”

The 41-year-old had 16 goals and 19 assists in the 2012-2013 season, splitting time between Dallas and Boston.
