Perhaps, but not amazing.
So Beliveau and Hull weren't amazing?
Plain and simple, Jagr had the 3rd best playoff PPG of the DPE if you remove Lemieux (Sakic and Forsberg were 1 and 2 and they had each other), and since this board is obsessed with primes and peaks and PPG's, isn't it amazing? Players like Federov, Yzerman, Modano who are considered playoff heroes had worse PPG's than Jagr did during the DPE.
I suggest you take Jagr's PPG before he came back from the KHL and compare it to any player ahead of him at the time. I will give you a hint, there weren't 10 players who played as many or more games and who had a better PPG.
There was Wayne, Mario, Messier, Bossy, Kurri, Stastny, Sakic, Forsberg....
Steve Yzerman is even lower than Jagr on the list, I don't see anyone discrediting him.
