My point is that your argument about how we shouldn't expect results from Lang because he isn't skilled is clearly wrong.
Why bring Cheli into it? Is Cheli here to produce points?
Is Whitney even on our team anymore?
What is Lang's role on this team, if not to produce points?
Is that not why we traded for the LEAGUE LEADER in points? It certainly wasn't for his outstanding defensive skills.
We got him to set up plays (which he still does in the Post season, regardless of if you recognize it or not)
We already had a ton of quality goal scorers on our team when we acquired him... Lang was just an add on. Obviously he wasn't going to be our team leader nor get the first line ice time.
I brought cheli into this to show you how just because a player is something on another team (i.e. lang being a league leader) doesn't mean they will be that on our team.

Was Whitney a 1st line go-to-guy when he was in Detroit?
Sorry, Chelios was not "leading his team in scoring" with 34 and 42 pts the 2 years prior to Detroit getting him...Also wasn't an "SOB" fighter. Why don't you just go back to his early years, because we both know it's fair to compare a 20 year old to a 45 year old!
Yet another flawed argument by you. I've actually grown quite bored with your baseless and inaccurate accounts of the Red Wings, and NHL history in your last post, so this will be my last response to you. Enjoy your crusades while the rest of us watch from afar, in the real world.
I was actually talking about the 95-96 season with 72 points... but by all means do stop your stats at 2 years prior
And lang is the go-to first line guy on the wings? Hmmm I thought that was pointless Zeta's job to be the go-to #1 line player. Lang produces enough for one person... The other members of the team... should be more than capable of pulling up the slack.
Finally you are bored... that took much longer than I thought.
