Jagr should also use his shot more on the powerplay. I think he's trying to get other players involved and boost their confidence but with him shooting more, it opens the ice up for every one else.
It's nice to see that a soon to be 41 year old can still handle 20 minutes a game.
I think he is doing a great job of shooting, i think he is just getting unlucky. He is also doing the beaver tap A LOT in the last 2-3 games, so that is a great sign. I think the back injury from the 2nd game slowed him down, along with no Benn early on so i think he will be okay. He is leading the team in shots and he is getting some good looks on the powerplay.
It is too bad he is with Morrow though. I really disliked watching Hartnell get success off him and Giroux, so i am kind of disappointed to see morrow on the line with Benn & Jagr, maybe when Whitney returns they will try someone else besides morrow :-D
