Really? Cuz what I saw for most of the season was a 36 year old who has lost a step and was showing his age. Force of will will not keep you playing elite hockey through an 82 game season and into the playoffs. Did Jagr get a ton of attention this year that wasn't put on other people? Sure he did. Did it work on him this time? You bet it did. Why? Because he has lost a step

The Jagr we saw in the last few weeks of the season and in the playoffs is not the Jagr we're going to see all year next year. We'll get glimpses. If they do resign him and I'm wrong, then I'll eat crow. But I absolutely refuse to let his recent performance blind me to what I saw the rest of the year.
