Jagr really got back his skating playing in the RSL (easier scheduele and bigger ice), got over his groin problems.

Not only is Jagr feeling allot better here in NY then he did in Washington, he is in much better physical shape. He really lost his speed there around 02', kind of like Selläne his season in Colorado.

I remember every talking about JJ's skating in the 04' WCH, looked like a diffrent player then what he did in 02' in the OG and WCH.

Why was the name rip on the back of his jersey, on only a couple of goals..... Was that another player?

Yep

Man, I forgot how sick his shot was. Last year he scored numerous goals with either that snap shot, or one-timer slap shot. I still don't think his shoulder is 100%. I think he is obviously getting closer, and it is remarkable that he still found a way to score 30 goals this year.:amazed: I bet if he can have a whole off season to strengthin his shoulder, we will see him score 50 again next year.

It was "Jagr" during a cup when the winners from the European leagues met each other over a weekend.

Thanks "Henrik68" for the stats, very interesting. As a matter of fact, were any other Rangers or NHLers on any of the two teams Jagr played for ?

Yeah, after watching the NHL allot this season, the SEL is pretty hard to follow. All experts talk about how much they have cracked down on hooks ect here, man if a team gets a lead you can just turn it off. If a player trys a move, he got 2 sticks crossed around his waist.

Rangers' prospect Dmitry Subbotin, NHL backup Norm Maracle, former NHLers Kovalenko, Krovokrasov, Nazarov, Jaroslav Bednar, Montreal Canadiens' Perezhogin and Oleg Tverdovsky played with Jagr in Omsk.

Kladno: the Kaberle brothers have played with Jagr

I was fortunate to see Jagr play for Avangard in Omsk, Russia (My adopted hometown) during the lockout year. Ak-Bars Kazan, one of the richest clubs in the Superleague, added Kovalev, Richards, lecavalier, and Kasparaitis. The owner of Avangard added Jagr midway through the season in order to counter these big signings.

Jagr played on an Avangard team that had just won the league the year before, and appeared in the Euro Cup, winning the MVP of that tourney, which has all of the European league champions from the previous year pitted against one another.

Avangard limps into the playoffs as a 7 seed, to face the 2 seed, the mighty Mettalurg Magnitogorsk in the first round. "Magnitka" had stormed through the league on the strength of a rookie named Evgeni Malkin and the superb goaltending of Evgeni Nabokov of the Sharks.

For the second year in a row (Omsk beat Magnitka in the finals a year previous), Avangard beats Mettalurg in an upset.

In the next round Jagr and Avangard face the juggernaut that is Moscow Dynamo, featuring league scoring leader Pavel Rosa, Andrei Markov, and some prospect named Ovechkin. Avangard just got crushed and swept in that series, one game was 11-1 for Dynamo. Dynamo winds up winning the championship without losing even a single game.

Jagr was dominant in the league that year, he stickhandled more than he does in the NHL by people as opposed to protecting the puck with his body in the corners like he does now. There is minimal hitting in the league, so Jagr took full advantage and dipsy doodled by guys all the time.

He was later quoted as saying that having that experience in Omsk revitalized him- he had a great relationship with Valery Belousov, Head trainer (coach) for Avangard.

Aside from the world class plays and awesome shotting prowess, this video is very well made, props to the creator.

That's EXACTLY how it's here in Finland too. The crackdown was gone by Christmas but no one seemed to notice and the media continued to praise how strictly everything was called, when in reality it was clutch'n'grab back in full swing.
It's just dumb.

And about Jagr: like that video showed, Jagr's wrister kills when he's fully capable of using it. I also think he's still the top stickhandler in the NHL, even though he's not as smooth as players like Datsyuk and Hemsky. To invent a new term, I'd say Jagr's the best effective stickhandler around; He focuses on purposeful stickhandling whereas others, like the aforementioned duo, choose style over substance on many occasions. I'm a Penguins fan, but JJ is easily my favorite player apart from the Pens. I hope the Rangers win the Cup this year, with Jagr possibly receiving the Conn Smythe.
