Hit the nail on the head with this one. G was dominant when he was playing with Jagr because Jagr is a crafty player who is dangerous so G had more space. He's being tight checked because Hartnell and Jake are not threats to shoot in the zone. They can't create their own space like Jagr could. Just watch Jake. He's only really a threat when he's at full speed on on the PP. This is exactly why I advocated for Bobby Ryan. G needed a winger who was a threat to score.
