I actually like thess lines better than how I had it.

I would definitley let AA/Stepan battle it out for that 3rd line role...
As for top line LW, I would put Dubi there since him and Jagr have that chemistry.
Second line LW is up for grabs... I would like to see us slot Prospal/Wolski/Avery take the 2/3 line LW role. I'm not sold at Hagelin and i'm all for let the kids play but no way a rookie Hagelin is the better option than any of the 3 listed above.

Jagr was clearly and sharply on the decline when he left the NHL. To think that 3 years later he will come back and drop 70 points again is ambitious, to say the least.

Jagr said himself he believed it may very well be a 3rd line/pp role that he filled in the NHL. If you don't believe me, look it up yourself. His words, not mine.

Expecting Jagr to be some sort of savior, and to come back in and somehow outperform Gaborik is setting yourself up for major disappointment.
A lot of that decline was thanks to his injury and his rehabilitation. It's been 3-4 years of him playing in a league that doesn't hit as hard or nearly as often. for all intents and purposes, Jagr is fresh.
