That's just the kind of thinking that went on during the Reggie Houle era. They all thought putting on the CH would lead to Stephane Richer becoming a 50 goal scorer again and Trevor Linden becoming that great power forward he once was. I wish that the CH did have that magic power over players but it just doesn't.
It was never that "magical" CH that lead to players becoming better when they arrived in Montreal, it was the people already in that room. People with winning attitudes who didn't put up with any BS. Jagr is not that kind of guy, infact I don't really feel he has a winning attitude.
