This is not how hockey works. Just like adding a scorer doesn't magically raise team scoring. This is just childish simple mindedness. Goaltenders are the only ones that can single-handedly greatly affect the teams performance game in and game out.

 

Except for this team where good goaltending = losses and bad goaltending = wins :P

 

I really don't see how Jagr HASN'T greatly affected the team's performance though when he's leading the team in scoring by a mile and we've had a ton of close, low-scoring games.  Especially since he's managed to coax offensive contributions out of guys like Zajac, Ruutu and even Zubrus for a while.

FYI jagr is not leading the team in scoring by a "mile" im pretty sure he is actually currently tied for most goals with henrique at 21
