Now whether this line can work with Richards's Wind, Nash' Earth, and Gaborik's Fire altogether, we'll have to see. Maybe not enough puck for so many scorers.
The evolution of Jagr's game throughout his career is something to behold. I liken it to how Michael Jordan's game evolved as he got older. In the first half of his career, Jagr was Mr. Highlight - the kind of guy that could go through your entire team before scoring a spectacular goal. Later in his career, he depended more on his size, strength, and smarts - and, to get really into it, his enormous rear end.
