Jagr didn't prepare himself well for the game last season as he was 240 lbs and he thought the game was still the way it was when he left it in 2007-08 when he would just use his body and size along the boards and play a cycle game. He admitted this himself.

He lost the weight and dropped down to 220 lbs in the offseason for a reason.

... but I guess most hockey experts have no idea what they are talking about right? I don't see Hemsky and Krejci who are both a decade younger than Jagr if not more putting up those kinds of numbers in the same league this year.
Okay I won't hold you to Jagr winning the Art Ross which was obviously a joke on your part right, but he isn't even going tob e in the top 20 in scoring.

Do you even watch the NHL or do you live in some past universe where Jagr and his mullet are still powering through the players in the 90's?

Jagr was a complimentary player in Philly last season pure and simple.

Good for his age but not Art Ross worthy.
