Looking back on Jagr's 3 seasons as a Ranger (not counting the trade year)
S1 - incredible regular season, woeful playoffs (not alone here), average team success.
S2 - very good season, good playoffs (overshadowed by Nylander and Rozi IMO), slightly above average team success (and even if we had of got by the Sabres, Ott would have rolled us)
S3 - lowest point total since 91-92 (not counting shortened season), excellent playoffs, average team success.

Overall he came in, played well (especially for 2 seasons) and helped the team achieve SFA. The 05-06 season was fun to watch, but it lead nowhere. IMO the only reason he is looked back on so fondly is because of how god-awful this team was for so long.
He was pretty much just another high-priced signing (although obtained thru trade) who couldn't help the TEAM achieve any real success.
