That's perfectly fine. We can dress a forward prospect each game and let him take normal 4th line minutes plus a handful of Jagr's ES shifts (when the game situation allows).

This gives the prospect more minutes than they'd get playing 4th line only, let's them have some quality top line time without all of the pressure, and also let's Jagr save himself for the PP and bigger moments in the game.
