We all know what happens to Jagr when the going gets tough.

He scores at a higher playoff PPG than Iginla and wins your team two Stanley Cups to Iginla's zero?

I'm amazed at how Penguins fans are suddenly willing to bash one of the players ever to play for the team just because he now plays for the Bruins. Ridiculous.

Have you seen this poll section? It is constantly a voting comparison of two or more players. Not hard to figure out here.

Only reason it is these two players specifically is that this very bet was presented to me yesterday and I thought it was a very tough call. Then I heard it again on the radio (this exact comparison) so I thought the next step was the polls to gauge other people's opinions.
But I'm a Penguins fan. And I don't like the idea that any player on any other team may be better than mine. So I'm just going to repeatedly post pictures of the Stanley Cup, because my team is currently the favorite for the Stanley Cup. And as we all know, the team that is the favorite to win the championship ALWAYS does. Every time. Like last year.

Jagr drew contention from Pens fans before this whole fiasco. Not that Pens fans are all upset over him going to Boston, but...

Playoff stats

Iginla - 54 games played 28-21-49.....0 cups

Jagr - 180 Games played 78-111-189.....2 cups

If Jagr mails it in then what does that say about Iginla?

That Iginla didn't play with Lemieux and Francis, nor did he get the chance to play 180 playoff games.

Iginla is washed up.

Jagr is simply the much better player at this point

Iginla has better linemates....Jagr is a better player.

Jagr I think because he'll likely be counted on to be the focal point of his team's powerplay.

Yup, and Jagr - the heroic player that he is - helped lead the Capitals to 0 Stanley Cups. Those two goals against Tampa Bay in '03 are stuff of legend.

Just as many as Iginla led his team to. Jagr is the better player.

I know, eh? That loser only contributed 13 goals during Calgary's magical run. He is definitely the reason for that franchise's misfortune.

Jagr has been the better player so far this year and we'll see what they can both do with their new teams in the playoffs.

He choked and did nothing in the final two games where Calgary could have won.

and has choked in every Calgary playoff series since then.

In the last two games of every playoff series from the 2004 Cup Final on here is Iggy's stat line.

10 games, 3 goals, 0 assists, 3 points... - 22.... ok maybe not -22 but still pretty low.


If you are counting on Iggy to give you any offense in those games..well you're team is going nowhere.

He is not the kind of player you want for a run.

Lol of course Jagr will get more points and be a greater factor. The difference is Jagrs brain doesn't get old. He is generational in terms of hockey ability and hockey sense. Iginla was a elite player during his prime but no where near Jagr.

Even suggesting Jagr gets tentative when things get tough makes no sense. He had a history of getting moody and unhappy, but that doesn't speak to his compete level during big games. I remember had an awful last season with NY, low 70s in points, no chemistry with Gomez. Then playoffs came and despite being on a line with Dubinsky and being 37 years old, individually he played better than either Crosby or Malkin. Ultimately both of them were too much for NYR, but point is Jagr BROUGHT it.

Jagr is and will always be a better player than Iginla, it's no contest. He still is better and the only way Iginla gets more than Jagr is through the Kip Miller effect.

I'll say Jagr for now.
Can't you say the same thing about the Bruins and Bergeron?

Except Jagr can still carry the play offensively on his own. Considering he was leading the Dallas Stars (in the more defensive minded Western Conference) in scoring at age 41 says he can still be top dog on a team. Even at this stage of his career Jagr always seems to face the opposing team's best defensive pairings and shutdown line.

Jagr with 6 point lead with 10 games to go. I'd expect a big multi-point night from Iginla soon.
