Lemieux is the best player ever so its hard not to like him but Jagr I have never liked. THe only reason he got that good stats is because he played with Lemieux. When he went to Captitals he was a joke even though the second year he was much better but still far from the 160p a season he could do with lemieux.
Pittsburgh was managed by idiots. The kiss of Lemieux destroyed the club. THe journalists started to call it that. It was when a player was put in the same line as Jagr and Lemiuex and he played really well making a lot of points he got sold immediately. Näslund was amazing in that line scored beautifull goals every week but was then sold to Canucks where he eventually became the best player in the league.
Pittsburgh was all about Lemieux and Jagr. Kasparaitis was a big star but since he was a defender he was accepted. When "Robocop" Samuelsson was sold to Rangers it was pretty obvious they are selling the team out and just want to keep Lemiuex and Jagr.
