Most of Jagr's best assists seasons came when scoring was lower than it is even now.

1997-98, Jagr 67 assists to lead the league (lower scoring than at any time post-lockout).

1998-99, Jagr 83 assists to lead the league (lower scoring than at any time post-lockout).

1999-00, Jagr 54 assists (in just 63 games) still finising 3rd overall (lower scoring than at any time post-lockout).

2000-01, Jagr 69 assists to lead the league (lower scoring than at any time post-lockout).
