      I didn't rate Jagr, but I expect the reason he got a PHY 3
      was because he is so difficult to knock off the puck. Guys
      who get 1s and 2s get banged around a lot in APBA and lose
      the puck easily when confronted by a 4 or 5. That's not

      One more ratings question: Jagr is given a 3 Physical
      rating. I know the
      rating is not based solely on hits, but I'm just curious why
      he would rate
      even "average" in this category.

      Thanks for the comments Hank....
