fourtrax Posted September 1, 2009 Report Share Posted September 1, 2009 Let's be clear: we owed Lang nothing. He played for two-thirds of one season for us, he's 38, and coming off a serious injury. He got paid $4 million for not even a full season's worth of work. I have nothing but respect for the guy, but hockey is a business, and IMO Gainey was right to move on. Lang was never going to be more than a patch job at best. If we really want to develop a long-term option at scoring center for when Plekanec goes UFA and likely leaves, we can't have Lang taking a roster spot and playing time away from someone like Ben Maxwell. It's time to stop living hand to mouth. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
