Bure or Jagr

Just curious as to which RW you would rather have Jagr or Bure. Since both have been NYR's already one current ( JJ ), who would you pick. tough choice in much of a way i say jagr but then again i say Bure, so i dont really know.

Choose one Jagr or Bure ??????????

Jagr based purely on health.

If Bure was at 100% it would be extremely hard to pick. He is one of the most exciting players in hockey.

in their primes

at 100% health I'd have to take Jagr

While Bure is much more of a pure sniper, I don't believe that he made his teammates nearly as good as Jagr made his teammates and Jagr was no slouch when it came to scoring goals.

I'd take Jagr

Bure's incredible when healthy and my favourite player but Jagr is better than Bure...If the could play on a line with a playmaking centre.

Sickest line ever Bure-Oates-Jagr

jagr is better and more valuable to a team, but bure is definatly more exciting

his brief stint with the rangers was amazing, the way he could just pull a breakaway or great shot out of nowhere. course he did have a pretty bad slump the year he got injured, but still...

i remember that game against the ducks that went into OT...bure gets the puck in the rangers zone and just takes off up the boards, beats the entire ducks team, steps in front of giguere and slides the puck home. amazing individual play

i remember his last game as a ranger (i'm pretty sure) He got a penalty shot against Lalime in his surprise return w/ Leetch. He made the goal look effortless...He was obviously in pain but he just stepped in did a simple deke and scored right up the middle.

Assuming this is an "in their prime" question, I still have to go with Jagr.

Jagr in his prime was a 130 point player who though not quite as flashy as Bure was lightening fast and strong enough to simply drag people behind him.

This is almost an impossible choice... I have to choose Bure; he was the most exciting player to watch, ever. Everytime he stepped on the ice your eyes would lock on him.

I'd pick Jagr, but I enjoyed watching Bure more.

I think Bure's last game as a Ranger is when they got rocked by New Jersey in a Saturday afternoon game..

im not saying that jagr is a defensive specialist, but bure would just hang at the blue line and wait for a breakaway pass. other than that i think its pretty even.

tough.. but only way I chose Bure is if you're asking who I'd prefer at their Ranger peaks

At 100% health and in their primes I would have to choose Bure. Jagr was probably the better overall players, but Bure was the purest goal scorer I ever saw. Something the Rangers have never had. The guy simply knew how to finish, and the thing was he made it looks so easy. Breakaways were automatic goals with this guy, and cause of his quick short strides he got a lot of them...

I love Bure but because of duribility I have to go with Jagr. But a totally healthy bure would change my mind.

Jagr will be an impact player this coming year if the rangers do the smart thing and shake things up: buy out holik, and get a real goalie, an elite defenseman & 2 way forward

imo Jagr played really well in the short time hes been here

You started the poll, AG9NK35DT8.

If you're asking me (among others) to use what precious few brain cells I got left to answer your question, the least you can do is the same.


Btw, you got a nickname for your username? It's awful hard to remember it.
