This is not the best league in europe but it's supposedly close behind the KHL. There is very little hitting in the league but Jagr looks extremely good and i would say that is an excellent sign for Dallas fans if the lockout ends soon.

If you put that 1.46 points per game into perspective, he produces 1.64 points when playing for the same team in the 2004-2005 lockout in which he played 17 games and produced 28 points, not too far off his current pace. In 1994-1995 he produced at a 2 ppg in 11 games for the same team.

Jagr's two best seasons came after lockouts too. His 95-96 season he produced 149 points and the 2004-2005 season with the rangers he produced 54 goals and 123 points. Yes Jagr is older, but he is still a top 10 all time points leader and probably has the best shot to produce a great season in his old age because of his tremendous work ethic. Jagr's life is hockey, more so than most players.
I've enjoyed watching some of the highlights of his games recently. he does seem faster than when he was on the Flyers last season...
