Well here is some perspective for you Corey. Lang can take that role for one season, or maybe two if he can. That gives time for the cap to go down and teams be forced to trade away big contracts. Lang is a really good temporary solution. In Poker, you don't short stack yourself and bluff or you'll lose on most hands. What you do his wait for the right hand to come around and then you bluff. If Gainey can't find a permanent solution right away, he will re-sign a guy like Lang, because he won't be a long term problem on the cap, leaving us room to get that player when the other teams are gonna be shortstacked because of the cap.
