It's not even a debate, except to a few Fedorov supporters. It only became one when someone was comparing international performances, which is just a sliver of the debate IMO.

Is far as Jagr's "dying alive", he had a couple down years with the hapless Caps. If those happen in the O6, he probably still finishes top 5-10 in goals and/or assists, and not much is made of it. As it stands, it's a couple off years (for him) in what will be a 25+ year pro career, so don't see how that should be a major blemish on his career. If the Pens had not been bankrupt, they could have afforded to keep him and still ice a good team around him.
