I don't believe he will get more than 100 Pts but to say the last time he put up numbers like that was 2005 is not true.

In 2006-07 with a bad shoulder (reconstructed) he still put up 96 Pts for 8th in the league.

Players sometimes have bounce back years, Selanne had a resurgence, so why not Jagr?

That's why some are predicting big things for him. For some players, a change of scenery and in Jagr's case time away from the NHL might be his saving grace.

In 1995-96 he did have his best season statistically but in Thread in the History section it was discussed if Crosby's 25 Pts streak is the second best ever after Gretzky and someone showed proof that Jagr (although not a scoring streak) had better stretches than Crosby.

In 1998-99 for instance he averaged 2.11 PPG for a stretch of 20 games.

He has had many stretches in his career in which he averaged 2 PPG for periods of 15-30 games. It wasn't only in 1995-96.

Forget talking about his past though, let's talk about the future and what the Flyers are going to do.
