I can't speak to Lafleur specifically, and will not comment re: Jagr.

However, I am skeptical of this claim. Lafleur played on better teams and in an era with much less parity (more blowout wins) than did Jagr. Therefore it seems likely that Lafleur had more opportunities to run up the score (whether he did or not is another matter).
