Yeah this is how i have always felt. If Jagr didn't leave for the KHL, along with missing almost 3 seasons do to the lockout, he could have easily taken the #2 in all time points. It still upsets me that the Rangers didn't have faith in him and decided on signing horrible deals with gomez, drury and wade redden. Those three terrible signings, along with a few others ones, are one of the main reasons i think jagr left the rangers and NHL.

He was really a beast (and still is) and i don't think he gets the respect he truly deserves as one of the best hockey players ever. I don't think people like giving a european that much respect, also.
