I don't think some fans realized how good we had it with Jagr, yet every now and then you see someone say "Jagr was lazy and a bad captain." Jagr played his best in big games. I mentioned him in the GDT because our team desperately needed someone like that tonight, an elite offensive talent who comes through in the clutch. I honestly don't see how this team can succeed in the future without a player like that. Gaborik is no Jagr, not even close.
