Analysis: Jaromir Jagr was perhaps the most frustrated of the Boston Bruins at the end of the Stanley Cup Final last June.
The Bruins acquired Jagr from the Dallas Stars at the trade deadline in an effort to shore up their offensive depth and make them a far more dangerous playoff team. Jagr scored a goal in his debut with the Bruins and he fit in well with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.
However, something happened in the playoffs. Jagr skated hard and played well, but he could not put the puck in the net. He did not score one postseason goal. While some of it was poor puck luck, Jagr often looked a step behind.
The Bruins didn't re-sign Jagr, but he accepted a deal with the New Jersey Devils. While the Devils got off to a poor start, they are starting to rebound—third place in the Metropolitan Division and 6-3-1 in their last 10 games—and so has Jagr who leads the team in scoring.
While he is not the superstar he was in his heyday, Jagr is always well-positioned and off to a surprisingly solid start this season with the Devils.
