Having someone beside Eller who can basically glue the puck to his stick would have been great, especially after said Eller got knocked out.
Personally I found we had a much bigger problem crashing the net/creating traffic and clearing the crease/making the opponents pay for crashing ours.

Neither of which are areas I feel we've addressed this off-season, mind you, but Jagr wouldn't help us much in those areas either. So if we're simply choosing between Briere and Jagr (the original argument), I still go with the guy who I feel is the better player, Briere.
