Jagr got a bit of a reputation in Washington four pouting and not playing as hard as he could, am glad to hear that is not the case in NY.

And other than off season surgery, he's been pretty healthy...ie recovering nicely?

Cheers.






His groin/hip issues are still around but luckily while they've been present in his tenure as a Ranger they have not side lined him for any legitimate amount of time ::::knocks on wood::::

Compared to last season, though...

he's about 75% the man. The numbers (or projected numbers) seem to be close to where he was last season, but he's not. His goals are down signficantly. I would say that the chances he's created is down a fair amount too, but one difference between this season and last is that Straka and Nylander have finished more of their chances (a good amount more) than last season. If Straka and Nylander were finishing last season like they are this season Jagr would've had 15-20 more points, I believe. Don't get me wrong, Jagr's still having a very good season, but it's still a bit off last season's phenomenal season. He's not as dominant and is quiet in too many games, when compared to last season. I can't help but think that the injury is partly to blame, but also other teams have figured out how to play him and aren't afraid to take him on.

Great points. One thing that I recall from his Pitts days was that he was all over the ice at times. During his Ranger tenure he has seemed to really get comfortable around those right wing boards and not really stray from that spot. it's pretty predictable at this stage of the game.

We are in playoffs push. That is not a time for rookie tryouts. The call up time is over for this season unless massive injuries force such a thing and bench (Prucha, Pock, etc.) is too short.
