The guy is a bigger forward, 6'1 205. He's capable of putting up 40-60 points if he's healthy and has played on his team's top lines in the past. He is a proven winner and playoff performer. He has been captain of the Devils and Team USA in the Olympics, etc.

If we could add him for $1-2 mil, why not? I think adding a player like Langenbrunner would improve our chances.

How?


Completely gave up on the Devils after the Olympics and straight into their disastrous season last year. You think they traded their captain for no reason?

Easy. Just look at New Jersey/Dallas' records after the trade. It was right about the time that the Devils made their crazy run and the Stars began to free-fall.

I agree with some of what's been said here.

If a team trades their captain, and the guy is coming off a really good season and an Olympic captaincy, that should raise some eyebrows. I know they sucked last year before the trade, but it's still a strange move if the guy was popular and liked as a leader.

He's a right handed shot and can score, but I don't know how much money we can afford to spend. The Wings need some open cap space for some possible deadline move, which I estimate we'll really need to make.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I don't see why it would be such a big risk if it was for $1.5 million. I would rather have Zherdev and Drury both but wouldn't be upset at all if they brought him in. Sometimes you have to take a risk. I know people like cap space but who do you realistically think they would trade for? I just feel like there aren't any guarantees at the deadline and would rather have guys with something to prove aside from simply playing for next years contract.

I think we're set for our bottom 7-14 forwards. We need another top 6 guy to replace Hudler with. Langenbrunner is not that guy.
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

I'd rather have a champ who's seen better years (Langenbrunner) than a cancer who gets by on talent alone (Zherdev).

I'd take him (for the league minimum).

I think we've got enough bottom-six forwards. Drury can't really score anymore.

I'm still mad at him for scoring on Ozzie from center ice.
