I understand SBOB's points. Jagr disappears at times, admits he doesn't always give 100%, and if he is not happy on a team, can be a cancer. He was happy on the Rangers here cause Sather surrounded him with a bunch of Czech players. And that last year he was here, I wanted to kill him most nights cause he spent most games passing when he should've been taking shots. I can't tell you how many times he'd get a breakaway, and instead of trying to beat the goalie, would skate around the net, and try to pass to a teammate coming into the zone.

I appreciate what he did while he was here, and I do believe he (along with Henke) helped return this team to respectability, but I do agree that he is, as SBOB put it, "a talented mercenary", and I never really looked at him as a true Ranger.
