Jagr is not very popular for some people.

People either love him or hate him. Most people saying things like Sakic, Forsberg or even Crosby being better than Jagr never actually saw him in his prime.

If people think Jagr was dominant in 2005-06 (123 Pts) then they are missing on how truly dominant he was in Pittsburgh. He was just as strong on the puck then but he was much faster and his stamina and endurance (fitness) was legendary.

Without exaggerating this is how I see Jagr being (in his prime);

He's the fastest player, best stickhandler, strongest player on the puck, best at scoring/ setting up players of the bunch. There is no way any of the players come close except for maybe Sakic and Forsberg and even then they were a level below him.
