I'm done with these arguments though. I'm simply happy the season is starting and I look forward to a fun and exciting season.

I'm done with these prediction threads. Even when one brings valid arguments to the table, I get ridiculed. I'm a hockey fan just like anyone else. I have a favorite player just like everyone else.

Is it so bad to think that Jagr will be ready for the season? Is it the end of the world to predict that? Is it the end of the world to think that he will be much better than last season? Is it the end of the world to think he can be a top 10 scorer? It's a short season and with him being already in game shape and playing at a very high, dominant level in one of the top 3 leagues in Europe, is it so bad to think that he will have an easier time to get into the swing of the season than other players who have been inactive? I get it, I get, it's a young man's sport, but Jagr wouldn't be in the NHL just to collect another paycheque. He left for Dallas because the Stars organization (Nieuwendyk among other people) promised him a primary role in the Dallas offense and powerplay. He won't be a secondary player like he was in Philly. That's it, I have said what I had to say.

Good luck guys!!
For the record I like Jagr and was impressed with him last year. That being said he's been out east his entire career. I don't think the western travel schedule is going to do him any favors at his age. I think you could spot him 10 pts. and he still doesn't crack the top ten. But at the place he's at in his career in no way is that a slight on him.
