Of course he was, he played in Pittsburgh for 11 seasons, however for the short time he was in New York, he was a huge impact.

The way he played in his first full season (2005-06), he played at levels similar to how he played in Pittsburgh and didn't have to do it under Lemieux' shadow at all.

Jagr was the man in Pittsburgh and the moment Lemieux came back, everyone expected him to hand over the C to Mario and suddenly it was Lemieux' team?

That 2006-07 team was one goal away from possibly getting to the Eastern Conference finals. There were stretches in New York where Jagr was as dominant and impactfull as he was in Pittsburgh.
