- he played a long time ago, and that degree of offensive domination over the next guy is no longer possible in today's game (for some completely unarticulated reason... that also ignores gretzky and mario's even greater degree of offensive domination over their competition)

but there is nothing in this thread that suggests that jagr was actually better, or even close to, howe offensively. only insinuations to cast doubt on the validity of howe's observable dominance over his competition.

You're doing a much better job of summarizing this thread than I could
