because Jagr was immensely important to the team's success because he's such an exceptional player.

that's two years. he went from 123 to 96 to 71 points. that 71 points may look small next to the 123 points, but it's still 71 points and more than just about everyone on this team is capable of.

that's one way of looking at it. you could also say that as the season progresses, teams are going to figure out how to shut down this team with very limited offensive weapons, and the team will go backwards.

Age is bad when it hampers production. Jagr at 37 can be more productive than just about everyone on this roster.

that is so weak. look at the stats. Jagr put up 90 or more points 9 times. don't care if he can only put up 150 points when the conditions are right. how many people can put up 150 when the conditions are wrong?
