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.
So when people are talking about how great Crosby is when he's healthy you disagree and go on about his nostrils, refs etc.

But when somebody brings up how old Jagr is you start going on about how great he was last year when he's healthy.

You can't have it both ways.
