Shoulder Not Strong

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
The damage keeps mounting, the damage from the shoulder dislocation No. 68 suffered in the final minutes of the Game 1 playoff loss to the Devils last April. Instead of playing with a chip on his shoulder, Jagr appears to be playing with a chip of kryptonite in it. The shoulder is still weak. Nine games into this season, Jagr, who scored 10 goals last year with a two-man advantage and was second in the NHL with 24 PPGs, doesn't have one yet on the power play. He's scored twice overall. You can break down the Rangers' miseries in every way imaginable, but without Jagr able to shoot and without Jagr able to control the puck using his power game, the Blueshirts are playing without a first-line presence.
