I don't know if that's Gully or if that's just a part of Jagr's game I haven't noticed because I didn't watch his games every night.
yeah, i recall ralph/razor discussing this a while back. they specifically mentioned gulutzan saying how jagr had a tendency to drift and do wide turns vs stop-and-go maneuvers when transitioning between offense and defense. so credit to gulutzan in this case. and jagr for buying in and setting an example.
