    We all know about his shredded knees... I've never seen him play an old-timers game or anything so I'm assuming he's incapable of playing even that kind of hockey these days, is that true? I see him coasting around in commercials, but can this guy really skate anymore?

    Mebbe he's afraid that he will be exposed as a media creation and Jagr will become widely accepted as the NHL's all time best defenceman in his stead.

    Or maybe you're right, I would guess he has pretty shot knees and doesn't get on the blades at all..

    No he can't. I'm pretty sure he never was able to play in any old-timer's games even in his 30's soon after his retirement. I've seen him "coach" an old-timer's game just goofing around.

    Sad :(
