Just to support my point that the Penguins were anything but terrible offensively, there are their GF/GA numbers during Jagr's prime:

1995: 2nd / 19th (of 26)
1996: 1st* / 20th (of 26)
1997: 1st / 25th (of 26)
1998: 7th / 4th (of 26)
1999: 4th / 17th (of 27)
2000: 9th / 19th (of 28)
2001: 2nd / 26th (of 30)

*outscored second place Colorado 362-326. This was Mario's last really ridiculous full season.

It's pretty clear that Jagr's ability to put up points was not hurt by the team he was playing on.

Their defense was terrible (with the exception of 1998), but their offense was anything but.
