Haven't seen anyone calling for 68 to be raised to the rafters, but after 7 years of dismal hockey and no playoffs he gave Ranger fans excitement and a reason to hope.
The Rangers have yet to get to the 2nd round since he left, that's certainly not all because of Jagr but the fact remains while here his team got to the 2nd round twice, and aside from the Gomez series when he screwed up his arm/shoulder he was a PPG player in the playoffs for this team.
A nice cheer when he hits the ice and a brief cheer for his 1st shift, after that he's just another Flyer.
