Montreal finished the 2011-12 NHL season with the worst record in the Eastern Conference, but the Canadiens are looking to add more talent this summer and make a push at the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the upcoming hockey season.
The latest rumor from Bleacher Report has the team looking to add more fire-power on offense and signing Jaromir Jagr is a priority. The veteran winger returned to the league after a three-year absence and managed to score 54 points for the Philadelphia Flyers.
Jagr is 40 years of age, but he still has the skills on the offensive end to help Montreal, and the Canadiens are looking for a veteran to help lead the youngsters, even if it's just a short-term solution for the club.
The former NHL first-round draft choice has over 1,600 career points, and while his skills have diminished, he still commands attention on the ice and would help the Canadiens with their rebuilding process and signing the veteran would help get the fans back in the corner of the franchise after several sub-par years.
