Don't get me wrong, Lang was one of my favorite Habs until his injury, and I'm a strong believer that his injury and the slump being at the same time were in fact, not a coincidence, but are you gonna gamble this much?
Gamble what exactly? The guy would probably get a one year contract, Prospal-like.

I can't see where the risk stands. He would be a great veteran presence among our forwards, he proved he had great chemestry with many of our players, and obviously loves Montreal.

He'd also help our offense, so if Pleks folds again, we'd have a second option.
