Well, I don't really know if it's fair to call Jagr a cherrypicker. How many times have we seen the guy take the puck end to end, drive past a defender on the outside and net one? A lot of times. Also, I don't think he gets his 60A per year cherrypicking. Cherrypicking implies that a guy just sits and waits for the play to come to him so he can easily cash in; if that were the case with Jagr, then why aren't there 100 other players out there doing what he's doing? It's because he's an amazing talent, arguably the strongest player on the puck the game has ever seen. He may be getting a little lazier and more likely to float in his older years, but it's silly to say that he's a cherrypicker and always has been.
