Jaromir Jagr at 44 years old led the Panthers in points with 66.

His production is remarkable as he is still a top line winger in a game that is dominated by mostly younger players.

The question for him is if the production from the regular season carries over to the playoffs. In Jagr’s last two trips to the playoffs he has only one goal in thirty three games.

Granted Jagr has somewhat revitalized his career in Florida it’s tough not to question if his play will fall off in the playoffs at his age. Jagr is certainly a player to watch in this series, and large portion of the Panthers success, or lack there of will be due to the play of Jaromir Jagr.

Next: Jussi Jokinen
