Who is the Greater Euro player in the NHL Forsberg vs Jagr

While they are both unreal hockey players and will leave a mark in the NHL history books as one of the greatest players ever.
First I’ll start with Forsberg this guy can play like no other hockey player in the NHL. I’m a big Avs fan and i watched him a lot, so I have to say there’s not much players in the NHL today that can change the outcome of a game like he can.

When he’s playing other players chase him around the ice and try to get the puck away from him, which leads to open ice and free room for his line meets.

While that’s what it did in Colorado he setup a lot of players there the likes of Tangury and Hejduk.He did unreal this for them and made them into superstars.

Forsberg always brings his a game to the NHL even if he’s not 100% I’ll give it he’s all.

His NHL career so far in points is 803 while only playing 622 games in the NHL l

Now I’ll get to Jagr.

Boy this guy can play too, he can control a game just like Forsberg if he is willing to play. Everyone though Jagr was done with in Washington he didn’t like playing he would show up and not have that smile that he does now. While in Washington he lost the love for the game and now that its back, he’s where he was when he was playing with Super Mario with all the smiles and joy.

Jagr he is hard to judge is he going to play or not but i think he will now with all the rules in the NHL he’s been playing like a champ and leading the Rangers on the right road to the cup.

His NHL career so far in points is 1,397 while playing 1,085

With that all said both man are unreal players and will be in the hall someday and they both help the Euro players come along way and many more to come into the NHL l………

So who do I think is better, while it’s a close call. They are both great in there way and style of game so it’s like a tie and only at the end of there careers with it all said in done you can Debate then…..

    Jagr HANDS DOWN! His ppg (which is the same as Forsbergs) is a pace accomplished over 400+ more games than Forsberg. Soon to be the highest scoring Euro player EVER. If Jagr plays 300 more games (probably a little optimistic) at his current pace, he’d be 2nd alltime. Say what you will about the OVERRATED forsberg, Jagr is in another league. Forsberg is an era great (I shudder to use such a strong word, but I’ll give him credit) whereas, Jagr is an alltime great.

    People talk about how well-rounded Forsberg is. While he is a better defensive player than Jagr, Yags is a far more well rounded offensive talent. Forsberg never more than 30 goals (that was only twice), Jagr 13 seasons of 30+ and only twice in his career not more than 30 goals.

    Not even a debate.

    “no” as in he’s not the greatest, or “no” as in, someone is going to pass him this year for scoring champ?

  3. mojo19 says:

    both are great players, and its close – Jagr is a better trigger man, and Forsberg a better set up guy. But both are dominant players and the complete package. Great combinations of size and skill.

    When the game is on the line who do you want on the ice, Forsberg or Jagr?

    While both are amazing players, I’m sorry but Jagr hands down is the better player.

    Please dont give me that BS about WSH it was their systems fault that made him struggle.

    Asking Jagr to play defense and backcheck isnt what you paid him to do – which is why his pt total suffered.

    Thats like asking Pavel Bure to play defense – HE IS SUPPOSE TO SCORE!!

    exactly. This comparison is based solely on offense. Given this, the closer you look at Jagr’s game the more obvious it is he beats out Forsberg, Jagr has a better combination of offensive skills.

    If defense were part of the equation, it would be hard to take either of these guys over Federov, career wise at least.

    Damn that man for having a name like that lol…it doesn’t help that I watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid last night.

    jagr….hes more durable

    actually it’s a very good debate… i believe the name of the thread is “Who is the Greater Euro player in the NHL Forsberg vs Jagr”…. not who is the better offensive player.

  9. Willey101 says:

    Not even close. Jagr in the NHL has been a much better player. We cannot say it is because he played with mario because forsberg had just as good teamates.

    I think Internationally Forsberg has been better but at an NHL level Jagr has been dynomite.

    Jagr played with Francis

    Jagr is the best single season scorer in the league and is one of the most consistent goal scorers in the history of the NHL. He has a combination of Art Ross trophies and consecutive 30 goal seasons that has never been replicated by any other NHL player.

    Forsberg is the best all round player in the world when he is healthy. But his style of play leads to injury.

    Forsberg’s game is more adaptable to the 01-03 clutch and grab NHL. Jagr is more suited to the 92-95 wide open NHL.

    So the who is better question I think really depends on the style of play and the duration of time over which one measures success. Forsberg is better in the seven game death match series. Jagr is better in the five years of open hockey.

    what about jed ortmeyer, dominic moore, blair betts, jason ward, jason strudwick, ryan hollweg, colton orr, and the departed max kondratiev… surely they too are AHL players.

    Jags too has had some injuries, (the most he missed was 23 games in 01-02 with the caps) but nothing compared to Foppa.

  13. Flyer_Dman says:

    There are a lot of guys on lines other than Jagr’s playing really well, and you have a really really good goalie. Did Jagr make Lundqvist better? Please.

    Listen, Jagr is a great player, and he might make guys around him look better while on the ice, but no where near the way Forsberg does.
