How will the Jagr trade effect Robert Lang?
 
I've only seen one or two Caps games this season and they have great chemistry, but not enough to answer whether or not Lang's scoring will be drastically reduced by Jagr's departure?

I don't think Lang will be at the top of the scoring race by the end of the year. Jagr, even at less than 100%, is still a great player and attracts a lot of attention. Lang will now have to deal with not only losing a playmaker, but also the increased defensive attention on him.

Maybe the NYR will find a way to obtain Lang's services. :D

Well Bob McKenzie has just said that he's on the trade block...stranger things have happened :P

As everyone probabley already knows, Detroit is really interested in him

Holland sees something in this guy he likes

Well, if tonight's game is any indication, things may not be as easy for him.
2-0 FLORIDA in the 2nd period

According to the NHL Network the Caps team should dismantle in the next week or two. That means Robert Lang is as good as done as a Cap, along with Peter Bondra and to a lesser extent Olaf Kolzig...

i just get that feeling hes gonna end up in Detroit, and Dandenault is going to be at least part of the package back. Its going to be liek Dandy and a 4th or something like that.

thats my prediction.

ted leonsis was on washington sports radio and apparantly shot down some of the other rumors of players on the block. i wish i could be more specific.

as for lang, if the caps keep its current the current power play together, he will be fine without jagr. he has a 11 pt lead on jagr because he got off to a great start playing away from jagr. his first 4 pts game of the season was a game that jagr missed.

zubrus is back tonight...carter will be added. the power play of lang gonchar bondra and zubrus as the main players has been great all year...jagr or no jagr.

The league's leading scorer (5mill) for "Dandy and a 4th"

LOL

Jagr just went for Anson Carter. And your team ate some dough in the deal as well.

Awfully hard to demand high value return for a guy who makes 5 mil a season for the next 2 or 3.

but, we will see who is right. Casue its obvious he will be traded. Leading scorer or not, hes not helping the caps win.

not to mention he's signed through 06-07.....

I agree 110% with X8oD Lang will be on the wings roster for the playoff push

Not bad for a salary dump. Especially considering what Pittsburgh got for Lang...

With all due respect, :teach:

The scenarios in Pittsburgh and Washington aren't identical.

However, it will be interesting to see what we get for Olie and Bonzai...

i always believed winning and the play-offs go hand in hand.

Unless there is now another reason to win games in the NHL. Winning 20 games and not making the playoffs makes it very hard to hold your head high and say "Hey, he helped us win 20 games that thats super!"

How do you expect one player to get his team into the playoffs? Lang is doing his best to get this team into the playoffs, but he isn't get much help from the rest of his teammates. No one player, except maybe a goalie, can be held solely responsible for whether or not his team makes the playoffs.
