they had no choice but to build a team around them now. why compound one mistake w/ another mistake of trying to build around somebody else.... that doesn't mean it was the right decision. bottom line is Sather didn't think that it would be so hard for either player to work w/ jagr so he signed both. then it failed miserably, and jagr became a FA, and he was stuck w/ two $7mil centers tied to LTC's. Do you really think he had a choice of how to build the team now? don't say it is the team that they necessarily want if you do not know for a fact, it may just be the team that they need now so they did that not the team then necessarily want.

by the way... 06-07 PO's.

The Straka-Nylander-Jagr Line combined for 6-10-16 and +1 against buffalo. Our team scored 13 goals those 6 games. That line scored almost half. That is a really really good ratio. especially since they were up against other top lines, and the #1 d pairing at all times. And once again we didn't really have much firepower at all behind them.

Drury by the way had 3 g 3a +3 against the Rangers... but he was held off the scoresheet completely 3 of the 6 games. Besides that one lucky goal, it wasn't like he was magical.
