Jagr begins to ruin another hockey team

Perhaps an unfair title? Oops, I dont care.

The Rangers are 2-4-1 and the Blueshirts are growing restless because neither Scott Gomez nor Chris Drury has clicked as a center for RW Jaromir Jagr.

The New York Post said Gomez and Drury "looked lost" playing with Jagr, who likes to carry the puck and slow down the tempo.

Coach Tom Renney can't endlessly juggle lines because the players need some continuity and stability.

The Post said the next option might be to try the more physical C Dave Scatchard, who is on a tryout with AHL affiliate Hartford, beside Jagr.

The link might not work if you dont have ESPN Insider, but not to worry, since I cut and pasted the whole thing for you "outsiders".
