Not delivering the cup to Philadelphia is something I'm sure he regrets about his career.
In the mid to late 90's... Jagr and Lindros were the best two forwards in the NHL, by a mile, there were so few players in the history of the NHL who dominated in their prime like he did.

He had Crosby's point production, but was the best fighter and best hitter in the league.
