Jaromir Jagr's agent says three teams are ``very interested'' in his 41-year-old client.
Petr Svoboda, though, told The Associated Press on Saturday he expects it to take some time for the NHL's active scoring leader to sign a contract.
Jagr might have company waiting for a new job.
J.P. Barry, who represents two of the top free agents available, Daniel Cleary and Mason Raymond, says he thinks decision-makers are taking a breath after a frenzy of activity Friday.
Day 1 of the free agency flurry included Jarome Iginla signing a one-year deal worth as much as $6 million with Boston, which almost acquired him last season from Calgary. Nathan Horton cashed in on his postseason performance for the Eastern Conference champions Bruins with a $37.1 million, seven-year contract in Columbus.
