I think a lot of people here aren't grasping
Jagr would help the team, and why people like me would be inclined to support a return to NYC.
This team, outside of Gaborik and Jokinen, have a ton of guys who a) cant create their own shot and b) rarely get legit scoring chances outside of a slapper or wrister from the off wing.
Even at this advanced age, Jagr is a horse on the puck, along the boards, and is an excellent passer. He is also a magnet for opposing forwards to help out down low when he is working over defensemen.
All these things I mentioned opens up the ice for the other forwards and for a d-man to sneak down low for quality scoring chances.
Nobody here wants or expects the Jagr of 2006 or even 2008. We have Gaborik for that. But nobody can deny that Jagr still is a major presence on the ice -- especially on offense -- and he would be a key part in making the Rangers a more difficult team to play against.
That being said, if he never comes back, i can live with it.
