Best Forward So Far This Year

I have been picking Sidney Crosby as the best forward so far this season. He has never been the top scoring forward, due to a scheduling fluke that has Pittsburgh with less games played so far then some teams. However, Crosby has missed a couple games due to a groin injury. So its time to pick a new top forward this season. One who has been healthy. I am picking Jaromir Jagr. He leads the NHL in scoring with 36 points in 23 games. He sports a +12 +/- rating. Perhaps most impressively, he has done this while getting over shoulder problems. Anyone looking over the Rangers top scorers will notice that Brendan Shanahan and Michael Nylander are exceeding their expectations. They owe a large part of their success to playing with Jagr.
