According to Dubi over at Blueshirt Bulletin, Martin Straka had officially announced his decision to leave the NHL and play in the Czech Republic next season. Supposedly, he signed a deal with his hometown team in Plzen where he would also be a team manager.
TSN.ca later carried a story in which Straka’s agent denied the rumors.
So is there any truth to these rumors? I think it might be true. If Straka goes does Jagr go? All of these questions should be answered in the coming week or two.
