Jagr's final Rangers season

In his second season as captain for the Rangers, Jaromir Jagr experienced a decline in performance compared to his previous stellar years. This marked his least productive season in terms of points, with 25 goals and 46 assists, totaling 71 points in 82 games in what was Jagr’s final Rangers season. Despite maintaining admirable statistics, especially considering his consistent participation in all 82 games for the third consecutive season, the numbers fell short of the expectations befitting a player of Jagr’s caliber.

However, the 2008 playoffs brought a resurgence for Jagr. Over 10 games, he contributed significantly with five goals and 10 assists, amassing a total of 15 points. The Rangers secured a 4-1 series victory against the New Jersey Devils but faced disappointment in the Conference Semifinals, succumbing once again to the Pittsburgh Penguins, a former team of Jagr’s.

Despite this playoff success, Jagr opted to join the KHL in the offseason, spending the next three seasons with Avangard Omskā€”the same team he played for during the 2004-05 lockout.
