. Jaromir Jagr. 15. player. 87. . Right Wing

The Florida Panthers have had a deficiency of right wings in recent years. But last year was especially bad. How bad was it? Colton Sceviour was the first-line right wing in the last game of the year. Evgeny Dadonov (who started at left-wing in the last game) was a revelation, but outside of him, the Panthers had unimpressive right wings.

It’s time to bring Jaromir Jagr back to Florida. And I’m not talking the old, but still good and handsome, Jagr. Let’s bring him back in all of his glory, with the best mullet of all-time. From the 1994-95 season to the 2000-01 season, Jagr was the most dominant player in the NHL. He led the league in points five times.

In the two seasons he didn’t (1995-96 and 1996-97), he finished second and sixth in points. Jagr won a Hart Trophy and two Ted Lindsay Awards as the player’s choice for the most outstanding player during that span.

Jagr has already had success with the Panthers. And he did it when he was well over 40 years old. In his prime, Jagr would be a significant difference maker. Aleksander Barkov would probably win the Selke Trophy and would transform into a Hart Trophy candidate. Jonathan Huberdeau would cease to be underrated.
