I don't know if he has a problem with Mario, but he certainly had a problem with Sid when Jagr was on the Rangers. They exchanged heated words during one playoff series because Jagr was calling him out to his face for being a diver.

PITTSBURGH - Jaromir Jagr had had enough and seen enough. So he finally decided to say something to Sidney Crosby, the young wonderboy who would be the successor to Jagr's idol, Mario Lemieux.
When referee Dan O'Halloran raised his arm and assessed a holding penalty to Tyutin for what appeared to be a standard check, Jagr was fed up. So when he and Crosby crossed paths near the Rangers bench, Jagr got in Crosby's face and, according to a couple of rinkside witnesses, told the Pittsburgh captain to stop diving and stay on his feet.
Jagr approached Crosby again later in the period to bark something at him.
Asked about it afterward, Crosby said: "Just ask him. I wasn't the one talking."
