Jagr sits tied for 6th all-time in NHL scoring which is a bit of surprise due in large part to the fact that he's played through three NHL Lockouts and played in the KHL for three years. Given his time away from the NHL, it's not unreasonable to think that he would have been only the second player in NHL history to hit the 2000-point mark and sit only behind the great Wayne Gretzky in career points.

You've probably heard of the playoffs referred to as "the dance" as teams prepare all season just to earn an invite to play extra hockey from mid-April to June. It's all about just getting into the dance as anything can happen in the NHL playoffs as countless teams have proven in the past. With all this dance talk going on we decided to reminiscence about school dances back in the day by comparing teams in the playoffs to kids at these dances. You could look back at school dances as cruel social experiments with so many different personalities squished into a gym with the expectation that every one will behave appropriately and that's exactly what the NHL playoffs are like.

This will be an ongoing series of hockey plays that are at risk of extinction because of their rarity in numbers or threatened by changing environmental and regulation parameters.
Conservation Status: Critically Endangered
The NHL has been taking steps for years to reduce this safe, fun, and very entertaining hockey play. Water bottles on top of hockey nets are not only meant to hydrate goaltenders, but to soar when a puck hits them. A perfectly placed top shelf shot or deke that sent a water bottle flying into the air was almost a guaranteed highlight of the night and is up there in hockey lore with going bardown. It's a beautiful thing and a play that strives in the wild with beer leaguers often pissing off their goalies in warmup by sending their bottles flying and empty of water.

the real undrafted gems of the NHL such as Marty St. Louis and Adam Oates, we're talking about the guys that saved your fantasy season when you picked them up as free agents following your draft. These players might have been on your radar to start the season and depending on the depth of your league you might have even drafted them late, but the majority of people caught their hot starts and snatched them up early. Regardless, these players have made fellow fantasy hockey GMs weep at their success and feel like idiots for not picking them up first.
