I couldnt agree with this more. I've seen far too many people crediting Jagr with "turning the franchise around."

No - what he did was stop the death spiral, but I never viewed him as the guy that turned things around. He wasnt the kind of guy that would take younger players under his wing, etc. It just wasnt in his DNA.
