No, because Jagr had the ability to score goals. A lot of goals.

Higgens played hard. Like Prucha, like Vally, like Betts, etc. working hard isn't always enough.

I disagree with this. Jagr loved it in NY, he didn't want to leave, etc. There is this myth that Jagr only played hard when he wanted too. Is this due to his GODLY abilities in the playoffs? Or during regular season play? Because for anyone who says "Jagr only played when he felt like it." I disagree 100%. Because the playoffs alone - which is when it counts - he was always possessed.



*edit* I am still in awe and completely dumbfounded by the love-fest Petr Prucha gets.
