I think it's just plain silly to pretend Jagr is in the same class as Mario based on longevity.
Might as well make a case for Gartner over Lemieux while you're at it.

Fact of the matter is that it took Jagr a whopping almost 60% more games (1447 to 915) to even match and pass Lemieux's point totals. Adjusted or not, that's not even remotely close.

AND it took Jagr almost twice, that's TWICE as many playoff games to match Lemieux's PO goal total.

I have absolutely no issue saying that Jagr is easily top 3-5 offensively among forwards all-time but the drop off from 2nd to 3rd is the Grand Canyon.
