Jagr's points fell off in the last 20% of the season because of his poor health. He was on pace for mid-60's or 70's for much of the season. If his points went either direction it wouldn't surprise me right now. It could be that he gets his NHL legs back a bit more and there's even an uptick. On the other hand, he's 40 now. He could merely get worse. There's no telling, but nothing would totally shock me w/ Jagr.

Then there's the linemate factor, of course. Benn seems to be a pretty directly go-to-the-net go and that might work well. On the other hand, he's not Giroux. Then again, Giroux was only Giroux light until he played with Jagr.
