NHL | What?! Jágr couldn’t believe his own eyes. It is not advisable to provoke the legendary 68, the apology came shortly after

On Sunday, he added a photo of hockey legends Pavel Bure, Wayne Gretzky and Paul Kariya. And he accompanied her with the question: “Which player would you like to see in today’s NHL?”

In the comments, it began to be filled with star hockey players, in addition to the aforementioned trio, names such as Mario Lemieux, Teemu Selänne, Bobby Orr, Peter Forsberg, Dominik Hašek, Jaromír Jágr and many others were mentioned.

But there were also contributions; even though they were in the overwhelming minority; that the older generation of players would not be able to keep up with the younger generation today.

“Bro, I’m sorry, but 50 percent of these players wouldn’t even score 60 points (in a season) in today’s NHL,” read one comment.

In a comment that Jágr did not miss. And to its author he decided to answer. “What? I scored 66 six years ago when I was forty-four. And some players on (this) list are better than me. Mario or Wayne would be unstoppable,” Jagr wrote, referring to the 2015/16 season in which he scored 27 goals and added 39 assists in 79 games for Florida.

The still active 50-year-old player received positive reactions from the vast majority of users.

“Hey man, I was just kidding, I was trying to piss people off on Instagram because it’s fun. I have so much respect for you, you are one of the all time best players I have ever seen play. I’m so sorry. I have respect for you,” user civak22 wrote to Jágro, to which the Czech legend responded. However, he later deleted his account on Instagram, apparently because of mocking posts from other people.
