Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Manhattan, we’ve got a problem.
Let’s face it. Gomez has looked lost skating with Jagr the last two games, but what’s even more troubling, Chris Drury also looked lost skating with Jagr the first five games of the season. Really, there hasn’t been a single shift on which either center has appeared to be speaking the same hockey language as No. 68….
As long as Jagr insists on playing the game his way - and obstinacy is a trait shared by every great player extant - then going with Gomez as his pivot is a dicey proposition. So too is reverting back to Drury. So what to do with the 2-4-1 Rangers who have scored two even-strength goals their last six games and pretty much will go as Jagr goes as long as he’s here?
