Don't get me wrong... An all-time great but for THIS particular poll, I have a hard time ignoring the ups-and-downs of his personality and, as a result, he comes up a little short of Mess, Trottier, Espo and Lafleur.
For all the talk of Jagr's longevity advantage over Lafleur:

Lafleur = 6 X 1st Team All Star; 0 X 2nd Team All-Star
Jagr = 7 X 1st Team All Star; 1 X 2nd Team All-Star

Jagr didn't have that many more elite seasons than Lafleur.
