Losing Jagr would guarantee that there is no Stanely Cup... With Jagr, there is definitely a chance. THey've proven that over the last couple years. They were excellent in the loss to Buffalo and they were even good last year. Just ran into an excellent team on both occasions.
Stop with the building the team around Jagr crap... THat goes for every single big time player in every single sport. For people to suggest that it is specific to just Jagr, that is nuts.
If you keep Jagr, you have to get guys that will best utilize his talents. Nylander wasn't even a great player, but he worked perfectly with Jagr and that was the reason that the guy was here.
They also have to get good players that work with Gomez and Drury. Gomez just needs a guy who can release a quick shot and that also has some speed so he can keep with Gomez on the rush.
Drury just needs someone like Straka imo... A fast, hardworking guy who can create a little bit. Straka should have been on Drury's wing more last year.
Jagr has to come back or we can forget about any cup this year or next. And for people suggesting Hossa over Jagr, no way... If you found a way to not like Jagr, then you will find a way to despise Hossa. Hossa can disappear in the biggest games (although he had a couple good ones last year) while Jagr always gets better when things are on the line.
