It might as well have been the 2004-2005 season; Lang's level of effort remained pretty constant throughout the lockout.

Good! clap.gif I have a feeling the Rangers will get him now, since Nylander is asking for too big of a contract.

I know this is off topic but is anyone the least bit concerned that Bert's name wasn't mentioned as having a meeting scheduled in either the Freep nor the the Detnews story. I know they said something about it in the busy weekend story but has something changed since that was written? I am probably just being paranoid but I'd like to see Bert back next year.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Now that Lang is history, he can eat all the double cheeseburgers and pizza he wants. However, a very important question has now arisen...will LGW ever find consensus on which Wing is "lazy and sucksâ„¢"?

The drama! ph34r.gif

Hudler or Kronwell I have a feeling

Edit to add Samuelson

I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

Oh, man. My dad inherited some money last year and since he never spends wildly, he decided to have some fun and bought a Lang gameworn jersey. He gave me his Wings sweater. I hope he doesn't want it back.

My hamster (Niklas Mathieu Daniel Robert) will miss him too.

I'll miss the doo-lang, doo-lang song.

But for the money, I have to agree that we need to re-sign Schneider and Bert and Dom before we would have needed Lang.

I wish him the best.

I love Huds, but I don't buy that. Not for a second.

You're right. A hot Lang probably also had an effect.

well. I am sure Bobbert loved being a Wing, and I like the guy, myself. But it's a tough world out there, even for pampered hockey players. If you can't or just don't produce in your chosen profession, the competition will get ya every time. We'll be fine without him. Sorry, Langer. sad.gif

I also can see the Rags picking him up. I wish Lang the very best, wherever he winds up. thumbup.gif

He has good size, a strong shot, and on his off year is good for 50+ points. In spite of his work ethic, I think he'll find a home somewhere in the NHL.

And in his 3 postseasons in Detroit, Lang has 9 goals and 23 points. 62 points in the regular season last year, and 52 this year.

It's definitely time for him to go, but I think the bashing here is getting a little ridiculous.

Those are possible options too. How about the Flyers,a young team in need of some veteran leadership.
Could Bob be their new #1 center?

Philly Traded a first round for Hartnell and Timonoen this week. If he went to Philly which i dout will happen, he deff. wouldnt be their new #1 Center.

There's a lot more players to re-sign, Lang's 3.8 isn't going to get us a ton right now.

OK, but that has nothing to do with Datsyuk. Every team has players to re-sign. Nobody said that it's going to get us out of a ton, but it's still 3.8 million dollars, AND the cap is increasing. It helps, especially when you're losing very expensive dead weight.
