-Leino didn't even have half as many points this year.
-Jagr has been a great influence off the ice, which has been a bonus if not a surprise.
-We completely trolled the Penguins in doing it.
Jagr being on this team brought the locker room together which is what we needed badly after the past couple of seasons. The team seems like they are playing for each other now and not just themselves. Jagr being more excited for Giroux getting points then himself this season was just awesome to see.

Also bringing in him and Talbot will do wonders for this team in the first round against the Pens. Those two players will help push us past the Pens in the first round and I love it!
