What Jagr has is longevity.
15 straight 70 + Pts seasons (NHL record)
15 straight 30 + goals seasons (tied for NHL record)
Highest PPG average for any player that has played over 700 games and has not played a single game in the 80's or before.
13 total PPG or better seasons of a total 17 seasons.
5 Art Ross trophies, 7 total top 2 finishes, 9 total top 5 finishes. 11 total top 10 finishes.
Third best playoff PPG of the Dead Puck Era (the other 2 being Forsberg and Sakic who played on the same team).
2nd all-time in game winning goals in the regular season.
tied for 1st in regular season overtime goals.
6x Hart finalist.
2 other 4th place finishes.
4 of top 7 highest point totals since 1995-96.
149 Pts in 1995-96 is second best.
127 Pts in 1998-99 is third best.
123 Pts in 2005-06 is fifth best.
121 Pts in 2000-01 is seventh best.
Since 1995-96 the 1.50 PPG number (60 games or more being the marker) has only been reached by 5 players (Lemieux 2x, Jagr 6x, Thornton 1x, Ovechkin 1x and Crosby 1x).
Jagr put up high numbers in a time where this was not very easy to do.
Outside of Lemieux and Gretzky, Jagr has been by far the most dominant, consistent and productive forward since the expansion.
