I have no doubt in my mind that had Jagr scored 2 more goals (thus tying Thornton but winning on goal count) he would have won the Hart as well not to mention would have tied Cheechoo for the Richard.
It wasn't the first time either that Jagr was robbed from a Hart trophy. It was the 3rd time in his career where he lost to the popular "Canadian" player. Once to Lindros, once to Pronger and finally to Thornton.
Do you have anything to back any of this up? No? Okay.
