If you mean who was more valuable from '91-99, to me it's clearly Jagr. Adjusted plus-minus and even strength points are likely substantially more in Jagr's favor than adjusted points are. So it was an older Gretzky, who abandoned defense and didn't have the strength to play a possession game, versus a one-man wrecking crew who was skating through whole teams and was could only be stopped by 2-3 guys hooking and holding the whole shift. Is that enough follow up conversation for you?
