Honestly I wonder how much one knows about Torts system, or Jagr's game, to think he'd be real affective in it.
What? i can think of HUNDREDS of times jagr threw the puck at the net,he11 he even scored once doing it accidently.

As for back checking,right now we give up lots of 2 on 1's what would be the difference if jagr was here and actually HELD THE PUCK IN THE ZONE.
