Eff stats for stuff like this. Different opinions can be spun based on numbers, longevity, teammates, health, TOI, era, etc. An eye test trumps many of these numbers IMO. Jagr does things with the puck on his stick that only a few others in hockey history could do. Simple as that. If you watch hockey long enough you sort of have a "feel" or "instinct" for which players are (and were) better than others, etc. Stats only tell some of the story.
