Sakic's more than two years younger and began his NHL two years earlier. During the higher scoring years of '89-92, either Jagr was not in the NHL yet, or was given limited opportunity (ice/PP time), while Sakic was on a bottom dweller with full opportunity and closer to his prime level. This gives him a huge advantage thru '92: 367-126. Jagr playing in the KHL for 3 seasons after 2008 (and current lockout) prevented the negation of that early advantage.
