Well there was more than just on-ice performance. There was an interview conducted in Czech and published in a Czech newspaper several months ago that got translated back into English and that started a series of backchannel communiques with translated-into-English remarks attributed to folks represented to be among JJ's inner-circle.

Whether that stuff is based upon genuine Jagr-speak or whether it was distortion we'll never know. But it doesn't matter.

The point is that the speculation was based on more than simply Jagr's on-ice performance and antics on the bench. It was based upon things he was alleged to have said in Czech.
