Jagr didn't have that many more elite seasons than Lafleur.
Jagr also had more competition, directly from the Euro influx:

Selanne, Bure, Mogilny, etc.

His longevity advantage is distinct when looking at adjusted goals, assists, points, etc. Even without factoring in 1.5 seasons missed due to lockout and three in the KHL, he obliterates Lafleur's numbers.
