I also want to point out that these young guys have done wonders for Jagr as well. Jagr right now is happy, out of the spotlight, playing without the pressure of being Jagr, and all-around seeming to enjoy his time in Philadelphia. I think he enjoys his role now as much as the kids enjoy having him in the locker room.
As Jags himself said "I never thought I would be so happy in Philly".

As for Jake, I really started following NHL closely in what was his first year in the league. He has been my favorite player since. He may never be a 80-90 point player, but the kid is all heart and its great to watch him develop.
