At least Elias is a result of lack of games played.
 
As for the rest, it probably isn't going to get that much better, but some of those guys should approach .5-.6 points per game at least.


For Elias, I wanna see 60 points.
For Zajac and Henrique, I wanna see 50 points.
For Ryder, I wanna see 25 goals. Overall points don't concern me.
For Brunner, I wanna see 40 points.
For Zubrus I wanna see 30 points.

Overall I'm expecting Jagr to finish with around 50 points. Also we've been getting good production from our defense. That too needs to continue.

How is Jagr still able to be productive and look like one the freshest players in overtime at age 41? I witnessed a clue after tonight’s game.

 

After playing 20:14 in the overtime game, Jagr talked to the media in the locker room and then hopped on the stationary bicycle for a quick ride. And the Devils had another game coming up Los Angeles about 21 hours later.

 

“I have to make myself tired,” explained Jagr, still breathing heavy from his ride. “I’m a freak.”

 

At the end of almost every practice, Jagr does sets of skating back and forth from the blue line to red line. He has his linemates – Zubrus and Zajac – doing them now, too.

 

Jagr and Zubrus playfully scolded Zajac for forgetting to do them at the end of Monday’s practice, so Zajac did extra skating after Tuesday’s practice. That and his winning goal tonight didn’t keep Zajac from getting scolded by Jagr again after the game, though.

 

“He said I was a little slow on that last goal, so I won’t be allowed to miss another skate with him,” Zajac said.

My initial hope/prediction for Jags was 20-30-50

 

Now I am hoping for more like 25-35-60 or better!  The guy still has it....

He is usually hours ahead of everyone else too just shooting pucks before practice, right?

That's a lot to expect from a 41 year old.  But it's possible.

NHL.com's quote of the day:

 

"I tied [Lemieux], but he probably played 600 less games than me. This is just a number, but he didn't play many games. If he would have played as many games as me, he would probably have 2,500 points and 900 goals."

No kidding. He's 2 goals away from matching Kovy's entire total in his 37 games last year.

Oh man, Jagr is working towards being the star of the Winter Series show on NBC Sports, he'll be this year's Bryzgalov (but in good and funny way).

Ovie did that his rookie year...     it wasn't as warmly received; because there is a huge difference between a rookie and a legend :)
