Thank you Robert Lang (the Robert Lang tribute thread)
 
Looking at the way Langer smiled and was so positive, I just have to get myself a Lang jersey.

Pending how trades/UFA's pan out in the next 6 months or so, perhaps he might be back? We shall have to wait and see but I wouldn't mind signing him for another year if no other option is available.

Before then though, hopefully he is able to have as quick and full a recovery as is possible and then he can start thinking about his career again.

Thanks for what you gave us this year Robert, hopefully we find a way to get your name on the cup this year :handclap:

:laugh: I know my post sounded too dramatic

You want to spend 200$ on a jersey of a player who will never play another game with us? go ahead....

YMCMBeaulieu 02-02-2009 01:52 PM

"You know" :(

x-bob 02-02-2009 01:52 PM

Hopefully his injury heals up full and he can make a comeback next year.

Fire Brunet* 02-02-2009 01:55 PM

Good night sweet prince..

Never say never.

Joey 02-02-2009 01:57 PM

it's a bit dramatic but I don't mind the general feeling of his departure being like that of a martyr

I really felt he was the best role model on the team for the Kostitsyn's....

He will be there for game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals. Mark my words... or don't :dunno:

Blades 0f Steel 02-02-2009 02:16 PM

It will go nice with his Huet jersey.

That would be what my sister would say. She has a pretty big crush on the Tzek.

la25ecoupe 02-02-2009 02:21 PM

I'm sure he's still, you know, smiling on his hospital bed now..

nyhabsfan 02-02-2009 02:29 PM

Career Over?
 
There is a very sad but real possibility that his career is over.

He's 38 years old making 4+ million a year.

Assuming, and it is a big assumption that he recovers in 6 months (injuries like this take over a year), do you think a GM will sign a 39 year player coming off a MAJOR injury for anywhere CLOSE to $4 million a year.

Even if he goes down to lets say $2 million, there is a lot of doubt that he could keep up, he wasn't fastest guy to begin with.

I hope he gets a chance leave the game on his terms, but in all honesty, I don't think it should be in a Habs uniform.

God bless ya Langer, I truly wish you the best.:nod:

la25ecoupe 02-02-2009 02:35 PM

This happens when he finally gets a shot at the Cup..

LyleOdelein 02-02-2009 02:43 PM

Win it for Lang! He's this year's Savard.

Well, if we somehow win the Cup, his name would still be on it, at least.


Win it for the Langer!

And strangely I believe that if Gainey is screwed once again at the UFA period, what other choice will he have? I just believe that there's a strong possibility to see Lang back with the Habs next year. For 2 millions? Gainey will do it. It's not like we have tons of options, like the center position depth in Hamilton is that deep, and it's not like the UFA's rushes to sign here....

Belso 02-02-2009 02:49 PM

I hate that jersey. Looks too much like a Leaf's jersey...

I'd take Lang again next year for $2m. Everybody thought this year he'd be some 10 goal/30 point player, and we were still sorta satisfied to pick him up, but then he turned into a 30 goal/65 point player. Next year he'll probably be closer to the expectations that we had for him when he first arrived here

goldglove 02-02-2009 02:50 PM

In a perfect world, he come back for the PO and sign a new deal under 2M with us.
