East or West? Siberia or Manhattan?
A choice easy to make for most people has become a dilemma for the Czech hockey star Jaromír Jágr.
“I’ll have to consider my options and take some time to make the decision about my future,” Jágr said soon after being eliminated, along with his current team, the New York Rangers, from the Stanley Cup playoffs in early May.
Jágr is considering whether to stay with the Rangers or join the ice-hockey club Avangard Omsk in Russia’s Superliga. Jágr played in Omsk during the NHL lockout in 2004–05 and enjoyed the conditions and people he encountered in Siberia.

...nothing new in the article, but thought it was interesting to see a take on Jagr's situation from one of his home country's newspapers.
