ready for the big time. If they re-sign Lang and tell Chipchura to stay in the minors yet again then he might as well demand a trade. They need to give the kid a chance, he was better than Smolinski last year, it just didn't make sense to pay a guy $2 million to play in the AHL. I understand your point about Lang, but perhaps Gainey could package players to get a RH offensive centreman instead of merely plugging the hole all the time.
As for Tanguay, keep him, he's too smart of a player. It looks like he's floating out there but he's really just letting plays develop and then jumps on opportunities. He's smart defensively and gets nearly a PPG. He was starting to find chemistry with Koivu before Saku went down with an injury. It's about time the team gives the reins to Andrei Kostitsyn and let Kovalev walk, unless he agrees to a big paycut.
