#1 scoring Eurpean of all time. Still one of the best players in the game. Do you even watch hockey or are you just being silly? Every time Jagr was on the ice he could score, or set somebody up. That is why teams built gameplans around stopping him.
you just answered your first question right there. We are now juggling the lineup, and our team around Drury and Gomez. Same situation as basing a team around Jagr. I am not why this is so hard a concept to understand.
we also got worse last year. and now who knows what next season will bring. It looks like we will be even worse than last year.
no, they dont because the rangers, for the past 4-5 years have drafted based on playing this type of style......they have players like dawes and dubinsky and many many others who play the same style as gomez and drury instead of puck possession like jagr
jagr had one point more than gomez.......hard to say he is one of the bets players in the league and then a player, on the same team who had one less point and was by far the better player(on average throughout the season) isnt any good
