This is an absolutely RIDICULOUS thread! Jaromir Jagr singlehandedly has brought possibilities to this franchise. A franchise may I remind you all, that was the laughing stock of the NHL just 3 years ago. I'm reading posts that say the franchise needs an overhaul, and that Jagr is a cherrypicker, all because the team is playing down to earth this season instead of lights out like it did for most of last season! SOOOO ridiculous!!!!!! The fact of the matter is, things broke well for this team alot last season, and lady luck was smiling on the franchise after so many disastrous seasons of lackadaisical and effortless play by a bunch of overpriced vets on the downward side! THINGS HAVE CHANGED FOLKS! For one thing, there are several young players from within the system playing on this roster. Jagr, has been an EXCELLENT player since coming here, AND HAS PLAYED THROUGH injuries, and is doing so now! We all can see that he is not fully recovered from the shoulder, but instead of sitting till he's fully healthy, he's trying and contributing in a major way! I don't want to hear how he isn't playing stellar defense, he NEVER has, his offense is his defense in many ways. He's not a perfect player, but by god, he's tried his ass off as a Ranger, and seems very happy in a Ranger uniform. How you bash a guy who is obviously hurting and is still near the top in scoring is beyond me. Jagr is what he is, an offensively gifted hockey player. Does he have faults? Of course......he pouts at times, doesn't like to play defense,and can be moody.......but that description probably describes about 3/4 of the NHL's stars, so blow the get rid of Jagr thoughts out yer arse!
