07:44 AM ET 01.24 | Like many players, Jaromir Jagr is a creature who thrives in a comfortable environment. He has built his Hall-of-Fame career on chemistry, and on having a sixth sense about where his linemates are at all times. It's a philosophy that has resulted in him scoring 697 career NHL goals, seventh all-time in NHL history. But Jagr's comfort zone has been disrupted this season. Aside from two separate stretches in which he teamed with center Travis Zajac and left winger Dainius Zubrus, Jagr has played on a Devils top line that has been a work in progress and is under construction once again. ... "It keeps changing," Jagr said Thursday. "You get new guys coming in and out. I don't really like it, but that's the way it is. This game is too quick to play with guys you don't know about."

Are they Jagr's new linemates or is it the other way around? Haven't they been with the Devils longer than he has?
