You guys probably don't want me on these boards because apparently Penguins fans think that but I will add my opinion.

I think to expect a 39 year old to be dominant can be foolish but I think you guys will be pleasantly surprised on just how good Jagr will be.

You guys don't expect more than 20 goals, I say he gets 35. You guys expect 60 Pts, I say PPG.

The team has a better goalie now and they have a healthy Pronger who is now the leader. He will play better because of it and the Flyers will be better opposite of the expectations.

I know it was 2005-06 and Jagr was 34 not 39 but go look at the New York Rangers then. They were picked to finish last by almost everyone and to play for the 1st pick and then Jagr promised on the opening of training camp that they were going to be a playoff team, he went out and scored 123 Pts and brought them to the playoffs.

A healthy, fresh, void of wear and tear, motivated Jagr will be the most dominant Flyer since Lindros.
