When to Gamble with Jagr?

Jaromir Jagr has looked good with Philadelphia during training camp and preseason, but the question most poolies have is when to gamble with the 39-year old that has played in Russia the last three seasons. He's going to produce on the power play with the likes of Danny Briere and Claude Giroux alongside him with James vanRiemsdyk as well. Those that have had the experience of drafting Jagr before know he can be the poster child of the enigmatic European that disappears and shows up when he wants to.

Is there a point in your draft where it's too late not to take Jagr and roll with what he might give you? In the Rotowire Staff League Draft on Yahoo!, someone basically threatened to take Jagr if no one else would, as he ended up on Andrew Fiorentino's team in the 13th round sandwiched between Tomas Kaberle and Travis Hamonic. Also going that round were Drew Stafford and Andy MacDonald as well as Phoenix rubber target Mike Smith.

Do you draft Jagr? What will one get with him?
