And if you don't play well w/ Gomez and Drury the entire line sucks. If you don't play well w/ Jagr, at least Jagr has the capabilities to still make things happen by himself.

It really pisses me off that people talk so much crap about a player who almost singlehandedly brought this franchise back to respectibility. Just pathetic by our "fans."

Jagr has done more for this franchise in his 3 years here than any skater on this team has since the lockout. He also was a HUGE factor in the development of our very own Dubinsky.

The guy gets no respect, and its just wrong. But Drury and Gomez who have done NOTHING so far for this franchise get all the respect in the world, and love in the world by some fans like they won cups with us.

by the way the step backwards for this franchise was signing BOTH Drury and Gomez. It definately was not a step forward. Just the same as the dark years. Throw lots of money at players who DO NOT deserve it and hope for the best.
Great post, man. I agree on all points.
