Re: left vs. right handed centres and forwards: interesting comments from Jagr in NHL.COM interview: "Jagr also felt he would have a greater opportunity to play more minutes, including on the power play, with Philadelphia. He likes the fact that the Flyers' top two centers, Danny Briere and Claude Giroux, are both right-handed and like to play on the left side in power play situations. Jagr is a left-handed winger who prefers to play on his off wing so he can play with his back to the wall. He has 646 career goals, including 181 on the power play. "For me it's an advantage to have centermen like Briere and Giroux (who) have a right-handed shot," Jagr said. "If I were playing in Pittsburgh, where it's (Sidney) Crosby or (Evgeni) Malkin, (both) left-handed, I don't think I would be able to play there. If go to Detroit, (Pavel) Datsyuk and (Henrik) Zetterberg are left-handed. I don't think I would have a chance to play at all.""
